Happy Hump Day, beautiful people! I hope your week has been going smoothly, and that those weekend plans are coming along. As I mentioned in Cut Yourself Some Slack, my newest little work was so close to being done for some time now. But, my house has been full of snotting, sneezing and all the other things that come with a sick baby. Anyway, I finally finished it today (YAY!) and couldn’t wait to share it!
I’m thinking of it as a second edition to my Le Fleur piece, which is why this one is named Le Fleur Rose. I’m considering making these part of a mini series, but that’s still under debate.
So this one started very similarly to Le Fleur. I used paint covered string to pull the initial floral shapes. I was really focusing on keeping a sophisticated color palette again and I think I’ve achieved it. I decided to add some dried flowers I had stuck in my sketchbook a while ago and lightly stitch them onto the piece.
I then added some, you guessed it, glitter! Something about working with glitter is so much fun! It adds a little shimmer to the sophisticated palette as well as texture and another color. Not to mention I just LOVE it.
I kept it pretty simple with the line work on this piece, as I didn’t want to cover up too much of the nice watercolor texture I achieved. I mainly wanted to add some lines to create balance and complete the look of the piece.
So this is the completed work ^^^. And below are some close ups that I enjoyed from this work.
I hope y’all enjoyed this one! I’d love to hear your opinions about what you think, or your favorite thing about this work. And if you haven’t yet checked out the first, Le Fleur, please take a look and maybe see how they work (maybe they don’t work together) as the start of a possible mini series. More to come in the future!
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Peace, Love, Serenity
