Poppies (by Gerrina)

Hello everyone, we would like to welcome Guest Design Team member Gerrina back with her second blog post this month. She has created a beautiful Art Journal page for us this time, and is sharing her step by step instructions so that you can try the project out for yourselves.

Feels so is my turn again to show some things I made for the Guest Designer Team at Chocolate Baroque! Three weeks in a row you will find my makes with the beautiful stamps from Chocolate Baroque. This week the second one of this month. Now an Art Journal Page for my nature Art Journal:

Used materials:
Stamps: Chocolate Baroque Autumn Poppy and Artistic Affirmations
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Distress Ink Salty Ocean
Other: Watercolour paper, Watercolour brush pencils, water based markers, water brush, ruler, blue and purple fine point pencil

Stamp the poppy stamp twice with Versafine Onyx Black twice, using a stamp positioner to place them as close together as possible. Colour them with the watercolour brush pencils. Draw the blue lines with a ruler at an angle all over the paper and the purple lines all starting from at point in the middle at the top of your paper.
Splatter with your water brush and some Salty Ocean Distress Ink and some extra water to add the little splatters around the flowers.
