Just am getting  started on my homework for the Altenew Academy class "Beautiful Details" taught by Marika Rahtu.  She is so talented and I'll probably never have the patience or the creativity to spend as much time on details as she does!  But had a go anyway.

I used some of the small layers from Watercolored Anemones colored with a Mememto marker to make my flowers.  Then doodled a bit with a fine line marker.  Found that I needed a pretty juicy marker to make this technique work.  Added the sentiment on a piece of vellum and some Pico dots and popped it all up on a base.

Thanks for visiting today and all your kind comments.

  3. Betty, you did really well - this is beautiful! I don't even know where to start.
    Thank you for the tip about a "juicy" pen - that is really helpful :-)
