Scrap Therapy MME LO

There's quite a mix of the ranges in this LO....

Here's how the flower is created...

Drop ink from a glass dropper, I try to do two drops one immediately after another from a height so it gives a 'splash' effect, then hold the paper vertical so the drip runs down the page (I'm using 7 Gypsies Couleur Wash)
Image


Then draw petals right around the splash
Image


Scalpel out the petals just over halfway to the splash, enough to slip the photo under...
Image


And then do the same with the rest of the petals
Image

So it gives the page a little 3D :biggrin:
