Do you remember this tile? Probably not and that is alright. I show you so much color on a daily basis, how would you possibly remember this one? Hahahaha! I couldn’t remember how I made it although I had my guess. So I went back into the site until I found where I originally showed you this colored piece. You can see the original post here, but long story short this color was created using Tombow brush pens as a watercolor. There is also a video in that post. The paper is a roughly 3″ x 4″ piece of Hahnemühle‘s Bamboo Mixed Media that comes in a pad of 10 sheets. I can go through a pad of this Bamboo literally in minutes. It works so great and loves all the color I give it. But this particular post is not about that.
I love the color on this tile and thought it would work great for a floral piece of art. I used my Eco TWSBI fountain pen and quickly drew some flowers. I had like 10 minutes tops, so this was a quick project. Only possible because the color had already been done and dried.
To add a little more color and definition, I grabbed my cheapo Cra-Z-art colored pencils that were purchased on one of my many trips to Florida. Probably at a Cracker Barrel, but you can also find them on Amazon. Because Amazon has everything. I use these all the time even though I have more expensive and nicer pencils. For something simple like this the Cra-Z-Art pencils are perfect. These are the colors I ended up choosing.
I focused just on the flowers themselves, nothing in the background. I tried to compliment the colors already in play, and highlighted those yellow areas. I love it and the best part is I was done in about 10-15 minutes tops. Because that is all the time I had. Hahnemühle Bamboo Mixed Media paper, Tombow Brush Pens, and Cra-Z-Art pencils. Ta-da!!!
