Hello everyone, thanks for joining me tonight.

I have a canvas to share which I created for Paper Artsy's flower challenge. I was so excited when I was asked and ideas jumped all over the place. I started something completely different but it didn't feel right, so I threw into the 'look at later' box and started something new.

I was playing with the brayer and Little Black Dress Fresco acrylic, and loving the random grunge it creates, when I had the idea to use the brayer on my canvas. You can see how I created it over on the Paper Artsy Challenge blog along with some other wonderful creations to inspire you.

I've added a few photos here, so that you can follow the steps I used if you would like. It is only a guide. I often experience a feeling that my art is being guided; this is the most satisfying art to create for me, although the outcome is not always good to look at.

I usually start with a colour scheme in mind, which I call following my colour. So I challenge you to follow your colour and create something that represents flowers to you. And of course have fun!  

So back to my canvas, here it is finished. This is very different for me, but the Colour Bloom in Deep Teal  is such a lovely colour that it all just flowed. It's a similar style to the lovely Jo  Myhill, whose work you can see here. This wasn't a conscious descison but I do love Jo's art so her influence is in there somewhere.


These photos are of some of the steps
