Try it on Tuesday - Summer Blooms

 Hi there! Today at Try it on Tuesday

we have a new challenge up for the next 2 weeks... 

"Summer Blooms"

I made an art journal collage using some printed words for the background, with a wash of purples and pinks for the background. The bottom part is a piece of scrap paper that I have had for ages and was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it.  I used acrylic paints and PITT pens to do the flowers and leaves. Happy Summer Blooms!

I do hope you will check out what my teamies have made for this awesome challenge!

Happy Summer Blooms!
