Magazine Monday without the magazine!

My sweet husband got this for me:

So I created this week's Magazine Monday on Canson Mixed media paper instead. Mostly because I couldn't wait to play with new paper. I hope you like it!

Acrylic paint background applied with a baby wipe. Then I added gesso where the flower was to go. Finally I  painted over that with the colors I wanted went over it with white and black paint. I printed the quote on copy paper and cut it out and pasted it on there. I found some micro tip bottles at Jo-Ann crafts in the quilting tools section that are originally for sewing machine oil. They were on sale for .99 so I got 2 of them. 
They work pretty well for drawing with paint. They are really tiny bottles, and so cute. Just be careful filling them with paint. I went gung ho and managed to get paint all over the outside of the bottle. A slow, steady stream of paint that doesn't touch the top what-so-ever is key. lol. 
I hope you like my page this week. Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Dawn
