A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of creating my best friends wedding table names, and thank you cards.
I created a series of water colour paintings to print on to cream card. I was so worried that I wouldn’t do the flowers justice, but I think in the end the turned out beautifully. What do you all think?
Tulips – severely underrated, they colours they come in are immense. They are bright and intricate int he middle. Simply stunning. Roses – the most romantic of all flowers I think and this orange and pink one is no exception.
My favourited flower painting is probably the poppy, it turned out so well. They way the colours blend together is just stunning. Lily – this one is my favourite flower in real life, I love how this one turned out so much that I’m in the middle of doing an orange one as well.Daisies – such a simple flower in real life but very tricky to make stand out from white paper! Daffodils – I love the bright yellow colour. This was my best friends Nans favourite flower. Bluebells – simply stunning little flowers and such a short window of bloom.
I really enjoyed designing these florals, and I’m very proud of how they turned out. I will be using water colours a lot more I think. They are definitely easier to clean up and set up.

So for Day 18 I’ve done yet more faces. The scribble face is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it is to help loosen up and reduce the need for an eraser. I enjoyed drawing it and trying not to lift my pencil off the paper. I’m now ready to start drawing from pictures. The second face is another face from my imagination.
