I am loving my Brush Pitt Pens. I used them for the shading on this piece. It's very subtle and makes a huge difference.
The first layer is a page from a ledger. I love the green color and the lines. I put a fine layer of gesso over it and then stamped with a Just For Fun background stamp in a couple of colors. Then I added green and blue over the stamping. The flowers are cut from a couple of pieces of scrapbook paper and then stamped with a dot stamp, a hero arts word stamp or a The Angel Company weave stamp. I used ink and paint for the stamping to give the flowers more texture. All the flowers, stems and the sun were cut free hand. I doodle a bit of grass along the bottom.
I took a friend's advice and did my lettering on a piece of tissue paper first. I was going to glue it to the page but the letters were too large for the space. Testing them on the tissue paper gave me more confidence to try them on my page. I'm happy the look a little different from my usual lettering.
