Hi everyone, thanks for coming to see my daisie. All day I have had daisies running through my head after watching a few clips on you tube. I started to practice once I got home in my journal. I used DecoArt Americana range acrylic paint and a 1/2in flat brush.

I saw on The Mixed Media Monthly Challeneg that Flowers are their theme so im entering this into their challenge.

I just painted the flowers randomly over the page. I also practiced some leaves, and bamboo I didn't like the flowers very much but I wasn't bothered. 

As I looked  at the pages over a cuppa, I had the idea of spraying ink to cover the white areas and chose colour bloom as I didn't want to cover the page just add some colour. Well!  I loved how it turned out, and that was that I was off...        I don't have many photos sorry! 


I just continued to build up daisie until I got to this 


The otherside before spraying

Bit of mess! but it wasn't intended as a creation, just a practice. After the spray which I kept the same colours as the other and a couple more layers on the flowers it got to this.

So as a double page it's like this 

I'm looking forward playing with the otherside tomorrow. But here's another piccy of the finished page.


Hope you like it as much I do. Big hugs Debs xx
