ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: ROSE RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY


Hi there!
Welcome to the ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: ROSE RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY, you are arriving from  Jenny Colaccico's blog. A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post.
It is time for  a new flower to join in the PAINT-A-FLOWER family.  The new PAF: ROSE is one you want to add on your collection.  The delicate but detailed image is perfect for all types of projects, or just to practice your coloring.  I chose to work a layout for my Family album with this stamp.




I wanted the flowers to be the focus of this project, so i pulled a few pictures of my daughter and i to create this page.




It all started by creating the flower corners on the layout using the stamp and Altenew's Black Obsidian Pigment ink.  I chose to have the  images as if they were coming into the page, and only occupy the edges of the page.




Here is where i put on my audio book, pulled the new Artist Watercolor Palette and color the flowers.  This time, i decided to start each flower with a light wash of yellow watercolor, and then build the color of each flower by adding pigment to each petal making sure to concentrate the watercolor in areas toward the center of the flower.




Once i finished coloring ( 2+ hours) i used a fine white gel pen to add small details to the centers of the filler flowers and the petals of each flower. The small dots and lines help to create the illusion of roundness and dimension on the page.   The following video will show you how it all came together:


                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                                                                

I just love how the page turned out! The new PAF: ROSE is sure a must have in your collection.   Remember to check the stamp at the Altenew shop, or better yet sign up for the PAF Susbcription program:

  22. Such a beautiful presentation - especially sharing the picture of you and your daughter! There is nothing better than having your child in your arms - especially at 17! (No way for boys!) The flowers reaching onto the page from outside is a perfect way to point to the picture in the middle. The technique you used worked very well. Thank you for sharing your time and talent to us all!

  32. beautiful work!!! so sad about the sentiment. When it happens to me (frequently!), I stamp the sentiment again on another cardstock and die cut it or cut a rectangle around it, then cover the sad part. But your page is very beautiful and all your time doing the details to make it just how you like it made it Perfect,

  42. Did you know there is a 12 word sentence you can tell your partner... that will trigger deep feelings of love and instinctual attraction to you buried inside his chest?

    Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's instinct to love, admire and protect you with his entire heart...

    12 Words Will Trigger A Man's Love Instinct

    This instinct is so built-in to a man's mind that it will drive him to work better than ever before to to be the best lover he can be.

    Matter-of-fact, fueling this mighty instinct is so important to getting the best possible relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man a "Secret Signal"...

    ...You'll instantly find him expose his soul and heart to you in such a way he haven't experienced before and he'll perceive you as the only woman in the world who has ever truly understood him.
