Sun Art Journal Page


The words will go in the petals. The yellow paint is gouache on top of pastels and it's very flaky.

Hi Shayla, I like the idea of your words written in the petals...reminds me of that ditty, "he loves me, he loves me not"...

that background is amazing, the colours really 'pop'. I would love to feel the flakeyness

Hi Shayla, I really like the coming together of the crisp white and black against the bright textural chaos of the background...

and the design brings to mind a repetition of the last post of the icy frost patterns on the glass...

very lovely...

gouache on top of pastels? that's something i must try someday because yours is just the effect I've been trying to achieve! It has an antique-ish look to it - beautiful :)

This is really delicious, Shayla...Super rich, citrus-y colors. The layers of texture and flaking give a nice worn, aged effect. The big flowers in black/white are such a great contrast...I love this one! Happy Days ((HUGS))
