Drawing Pattened Paper Flowers


Today we’re making our own Patterned Paper Flowers – talk about fun! All you need is the ability to do a little doodling. Well, and a stamp set to start with…the Bokeh Dots set makes this easy. Okay, you need something to color with. But that’s all, right? Watch the video below or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

I just love the funky loose style of this bouquet of paper flowers!

Art Journal: Patterned Paper Flowers

In the video I promised a look at the art journal page that came before the card. It’s done in Copics in THIS art journal – and yes the marker does bleed through. I just use every other spread.

And a crazy question: is it patterned paper or designer paper flowers? I tend to use patterned more….but what do you call it?
