I started this page with a background that I disliked, so I covered it with several thick layers of gesso. I used my gelatos to smear on some yellow and orange. After I blended that with wet fingers, I turned my attention to the flower. I used a stencil on separate paper to make the petals. I colored them with a combination of silks acrylic glazes and twinkling h20 water colors. After I cut them out and glued them down, I stamped on the stem and colored it, also using silks and Twinks.
The background looked too plain so I pulled out a heart stamp and some red ink and stamped the hearts. As a final touch I used a sharpie watercolor marker in white to write the quote.
