To Dare by Moira Sutton


DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics – Hansa Yellow Medium, Green Gold, Cobalt Teal, Cobalt Turquoise, Pthalo Blue, Primary Magenta and Quinacridone Magenta

I’m sharing another page from my A4 journal today. I do love working on this size there is so much room to play with colour. 
As always I began with a coat of gesso.
Next I began painting the background blending the yellow, green gold and blues diagonally acriss the page.
I created the flower petals by placing the side of the brush covered in gesso in the page and repeating in circles to form a flower head. 
When dry I over painted using the two Magentas. The stalk and leaf were added using gesso, fude pen and green gold paint.

I stamped my quote on white card in black ink and cut out the words, gluing them with matte medium.
