Paper Scrap Flower



I had some paper on my table that kept catching my eye but it was just a practice scrap that I had experimented on to see if I could write some calligraphy with a pointed nib over watercolor after clear gesso was applied. (yes, I am glad to say this works!) The experimental paper was colorful and interesting but didn't have much of a purpose so I decided it needed to be a flower. Bernie and I had fun! This one is 6x10.

Martha, This is lovely and so inspirational. I could buy clear gesso? I didn't know that.
I think you and Bernie did a fine job with this. I love repurposing things and your scaps are so gorgeous.
