As I promised in yesterday's post, Life's Canvas, this is what I ended up doing on the painted background layer. Once the paint was dry I found areas that could be flower centers. All I did after that was to sketch a few daisies with a fine point permanent pen. I thought it might be finished but then I decided to soften the background with a layer of translucent white. (the bright colors were a bit much for me)
I added the frame and quote with PicMonkey. Don't you think the black frame pulls everything together? Yep, I think this one is finished.
Have you ever created a project like this? It's a challenge sometimes to let yourself make a mess and just let the paints flow. It's really fun to discover shapes that you can turn into a completed design though.
