art journal | a year in flowers – Crocus

Today I am back with another art journal page, for my “a year in flowers” project. C is for Crocus!

This is part of a blog hop! Altenew is releasing a new “Build-a-flower” stamp set on the 1st of each month and we celebrate this release with lots of inspiration and giveaways. You should have arrived here from Altenew Card Blog. This month the flower is Crocus!

For my art journal I worked with my gel plate. I did lots of prints for the background as well as for stamping the flowers and leaves.

I worked with my Arteza acrylic paints on this project but in order to add the needed shading to the flowers I did stamp the different layers using my Altenew oval sets.

I always like to add the letter of the flower and the dictionary definition. It adds consistency to my book of flowers, as each page has something similar.

Make sure to check the video above for a step by step tutorial on this art journal project.
