Mixed Media Tutorial: Turning Blobs Into 2 Easy Doodled Flowers Styles

Last week I shared a fun and easy tutorial painting circles on your Gelli Plate. There were some pretty cool "blobs" on my cards and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.

I knew that I wanted to turn those blobs into flowers. I'm totally not a drawer in my art, but this was so easy. If I can do it, so can you.



SUPPLIES:

paper with painted "blobs" circles
any of my favorite pens (I'm using a Uni-Ball Signo UM-153 Gold pen)

I'm using the 4"x6" cards that I've created in the Gelli Plate Mixed Media Tutorial series.





HOW-TO

There are a couple ways to create some fun doodled flowers from your blobs.

  • STYLE 1) Outline the painted half circles

  • STYLE 2) draw little half circles going around the blob in a spiral pattern. Don't think about it, just do it quickly. I love how the messy half circles make it look more flowery and flow-y.

The second style is super fast and easy, the first style takes slightly more time as you're outlining each of the colors. You can see below that I mixed a little of both styles on my cards. I like them both and had tons of fun whipping these cards up. The first style looks more like a rose. The second style looks more like a peony.
