Booming Tuesday

This Booming Tuesday ATC is one of several that I am calling 70mph series. I did these as we were hurtling down the highwy at 70 mph. Relax, at least I wasn't driving.

I didn't have any water colors to use at this time but I had my trusty markers. I couldn't get the look I wanted so I used one of those travel paint brushes that have a small water reserve. So I put the washable marker colors on the paper then manipulated the colors to my liking. At least as best I could. I rather like the results. I will probably diddle with them some more like this in the future.I tried looking up this little flower. It looked similar to our spring beauties but if it was it was on steroids. It was larger and had more color. The leaves were heart shaped. Happy Blooming Tuesday to you all. I hope your week is stress free.

very clever! I did not know that markers could be water soluble. This is very interesting. I like the result also!
