Big Orange Flower Art Journal Page


I have been "collecting" Letraset Promarkers because of all the "colored" images I have been seeing on blogs and card challenges. On several beautiful images I saw the artist use these markers. They are really nice, color well and are less expensive than Copics. The markers bled on this paper which is what I wanted to happen on the petals of the flower. To stop the bleeding when I wanted, I used a heat gun to dry the ink before it bled too much. This picture is a result of my doodling. I really love how the blue dots on the petals really "pop." That is a result of contrasting colors. The yellow in the leaves are "popping" too. I love the look! What do you think?

I'd like to post this on the following blogs/websites:
