Lady Blossom

We have another beautiful image to showcase today over at Aurora Wings, she is called 'LADY BLOSSOM' and is just covered with beautiful spring flowers.

This was an epic colouring challenge, not only because it is A4, but also because there are so many different flower elements and lots of delicate floating petals.

Last Autumn I started my seasonal canvases and I thought she would make a beautiful spring Canvas for the collection.

I used Distress and Adirondack inks on the image background and also on the canvas behind, I wasn't sure how I was going to merge this one onto a canvas without adding tissue paper and I didn't want to to do that incase I ruined all the hours of colouring.

Instead I opted to glue the original to the canvas, then disguise the join with strips of sparkle to frame her, this way it kind of merges into the canvas.

I finished by adding a few different flower embellishments along the bottom edge, as though she is rising from a  bed of flowers.

Here is a close up image, so you can see all the details in the image.

  1. What a gorgeous canvas, Julie! I can see why it was a coloring marathon in that size, but well worth every second. Your details are exquisite and I love how you've softened the shades as they float further away from the image. Gorgeous work on the backgrounds as well. The bling hides the seam and adds such lovely sparkle. I'd love to have this hanging in my room. xxD

  2. Stunning canvas for your Seasons series, Julie! I love how you gave depth to the image by going from beautiful bright colors fading to soft pastels toward the edges on this full size coloring. Love how you put the flowers along the bottom, but most of all, I LOVE how you colored her eyes!! Thank you so much for this gorgeous inspiration for today's new release showcase at Aurora Wings.
