saturday play

One of my favourite things about Saturday morning is that early coffee in bed, checking out some of my favourite blogs and planning how I will spend the day.    When I checked out Diana Trout’s blog I loved the painting she had done after visiting Connie Hozvicka’s tutorial on 21 Secrets at Dirty Footprints Studio – I was inspired!

Green FlowI mucked around with the pull-tags off envelopes, acrylic paint and a white pen – sorry I can’t tell you what brand as I bought it in Japan and there’s no English on it at all.  I was much more loose with a brush than usual and doodling with the pen was addictive – I sort of got lost in the flow!  I don’t think it’s quite finished – a little detailing in black?  What do you think?

  1. HOW GORGEOUS! I say touches of black if you think so, and not if you don’t. Looking at it again, maybe yes, but it’s always hard for me to fiddle with something when I like it already and boy do I like this. But play play play, since that’s the point.

  2. I agree with above comments. I think it would be beautiful printed on fabric. You’ve inspired me to begin my journey into the 21 Secrets.
