Have you ever heard of Color Burst before? I hadn't until I was introduced to these bottles of powdery pigmented color fun by Ken Oliver. Once you activate with water, they turn into beautiful BURSTS of color!
I began by playing around with watercolor paper and a wash of plain water. I then began experiment and "squirting" powder on to the paper.
Gorgeous, luscious color ~ or what??!!
I then began laying down stencils - the Doodle It FlowerTornado stencil and the Doodle It Layered Circles stencils by Maria McGuire from StencilGirl and squirting different colors into the stencils.
After I got some beautiful designs and color and let everything dry, I drew out some flowers in vase and painted a bit with my brush to "bring out" what I saw.
I used Ken Oliver ink in this nifty little container to rub the edge of my painting.
I finished it off with writing the word "be" in cursive.
