When I woke up yesterday morning I had a VERY clear vision in my head of what this page would look like - neutral light background with the monoprint prominent and a framed floral element - this is NOTHING like that vision :-))
It has somehow ended up with my favourite but overused colour combination of blue and orange - albeit muted - the paints are all PaperArtsy Fresco Finish. I'm not really happy with it though. I do like the background and I like the die cut flowers. I've added crayon to the painted background of the flowers using Prisma pencils and I have shaded around them with Bark Inktense pencil - these work quite well.The quote has got a little lost however and makes it look a bit messy - I need to re-think my 'journaling'. I will still enter it for the challenge - if it doesn't count that's fine - the monoprint is now invisible but I like to think it has added 'depth' to the finished piece.
Here are the original monoprints ...
... and the one I chose to work with ... Neutral, Light and all ready for that fabulous floral thing in a frame???
This is where it started going wrong - still fairly pale but it just wasn't doing it for me ...
So I ended up here after painting another sheet with those gorgeous blue and green Fresco Finish paints
Back to the drawing board I guess
