JOFY number two

Hello again! If you read my previous post you would have seen I wasn't very happy with my last post. Well this is attempt two.

I used the two same colours as Jo, on her post for the paper Artsy blog in the week. This time I decided to use a tag and draw my flowers so that I could paint them. 

I added leaves, which I painted in the undiluted Teal and used Chalk for the flowers. 

I built up the layers of the flowers using a water brush which I let dry in between. Once the white was finished I added a watery Teal to the flowers to add some depth. I put this on with a dry brush and then baby wiped off. 

Lastly I used a bottle top in a very watery Teal here and there to finish. 

I like this one better! Thanks for looking. Take care Debs xxx


  1. I haven't scrolled down to the first one yet Debs so don't know why you weren't happy with it ..... bet I like it though, lol! This one is stunning and your hand drawn flowers are beautiful.

  4. Well there's not a lot wrong with the first one but this one has more of the feel of Jo's, and I applaud you for drawing your own flowers as you don't have the right stencil!

  5. This is beautiful, love your flowers, especially the feathery ends to them.

  6. What a beautiful effect you have achieved with the flowers! This looks serene and tranquil. I am working my way through visits backwards so I haven't yet seen the one you didn't like so much. I'm sure you are seeing it through overly critical eyes! This is fabulous, anyway! Julie Ann xxx

  7. I love your hand drawn flowers and how you have used layers of paint for texture,

  9. Love your hand drawn flowers with delicate feathery ends, very JOFY inspired. These colours work well & look quite oriental.

    Glad you pleased with this, i still like your first mini master board also. Two fabulous pieces Lovely:-) xxx
