My May art calendar journal spread is ready for the journalling. I started by using various spray inks to give the page a gently mottled look. I then added a variety of old silk flowers and a few paper flowers to create masks for each of the days of the month and I sprayed over them with green. I removed the flowers...getting my fingers all inky :o)...and let that layer dry. When that was totally dry, I came in with my Micron pen and did the lettering and a bit of soft sketching around the flower shapes. After stamping the leaf shapes and the birds, butterflies and dragonflies, I used my Micron again to draw in stems and swirls to connect the leaves. Finally, I did a bit of colouring with my Peerless watercolour pigments...and you have May flowers to follow the April showers.
