I'd Pick You - mixed media art piece

Hi there! TGIF, right? Man, I am so ready for this weekend! Anybody ready to see the Seahawks beat the Patriots? I am! Ha!!

I painted this picture for a co-worker this week and thought I'd share it real quick. It was such a fun little project and I loved giving it away, even though I wanted it for myself, heehee:)

I started off by spraying some Distress Ink Sprays in Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn. After hitting the watercolor paper with my heat gun and drying the spray ink completely, I drew in the flowers with a Fude Ball pen. Next, I painted the flowers in with Golden's Flourescent Magenta, Dina Wakley's Lemon, and Blick's Dark Blue matte acrylic ink. I went over the flowers with a black Posca paint marker in black and a Molotow paint pen in white. The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Love Blooms!

I framed the piece in a 5'x7' Ikea frame and it's sitting on my friends desk, waiting for her to discover on Monday:) Hope she loves it...but I was super nervous leaving it. I've never given my art away and it's definitely making me nervous, haha!! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!
