art journal | A Year in Flowers – Fuchsia

Hi! Today I am back with one more page for my flower art journal. This is my page for the letter F and I used the adorable Fuchsia flowers! I worked on my 6×6 disc bound journal. It has thick watercolor pages perfect for any medium.

video tutorial

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

close-up photos

The lovely flowers and leaves are from the Stampendous –  Fuchsia Trio( SBC | SSS ). I stamped everything and colored them with my
Faber-Castell BIG BRUSH Pitt Artist Pens ( SSS ). In the video I demonstrate the technique which I have been using for years and I absolutely love!

For the background I used my new distress oxide sprays in Picked Raspberry( SBC | SSS ) and Spiced Marmalade( SBC | SSS ). I also did some stamping, splashing and stenciling. Many fun techniques that make me happy and they give a great visual texture.

There are lots of details as finishing touches, such as white splashes, highlighting with white marker…

… and even glitter to embellish the flowers. The quote is from the Stampendous – Big Words Happy ( SBC | SSS ) stamp set.

    Thanks for sharing that fun fact! Whoever first thought to call them “earrings” was very observant!!! It sounds like something a child would think to say!! I love fushia! And what a great page … again! The colors are vibrant and fun and beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing your project, Vicky. I’ve been paying close attention to how you create your backgrounds because that’s what I struggle with the most. Enjoy the rest of the week.

    Gorgeous page, I love the fuchsia stamp set and great that the dies don’t leave a white border.
    This serie inspires me so much and everytime I have watch on of your videos I wanted to play with my inks etc. Unfortunately I don’t have always the time to do that.
    Thank you so much for this gorgeous page and have a great weekend.

    Beautiful page Vicky! I love, love this series. You inspired me to create my own 12 months of flowers, even though I don’t have the same stamps, I’m using old sets. TFS!
