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.

  1. While spring is the most common season for weddings, weddings can be planned for any part of the year. This means that there is no one perfect choice for flower baskets for weddings. A winter wedding will not have the same variety of flowers available as the ones that you would find at a spring wedding. Livrari flori cluj
