Flower of the Month

On 12 Months in View Susan challenged us to 'Create a journal page or a blog post about your recollections of roses.'

I used a heart stencil to draw the petals of wild roses and then added the stems and leaves freehand.  I used an Inktense pencil to colour over the pencil line.

Then I used a paintbrush and water with 3 colours of Inktense blocks to colour the leaves and add veins.   To colour the petals I wet the shape with water and then wet the brush again and took some paint directly from the pink Inktense block and then wiped the colour through the water on the page.

I drew round the petals with a black pen and then journaled round the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh Bernice just spotted this and it is absolutely beautiful. Love the heart petals falling down and the writing all around too - super. BJ
