I saw a suggestion on someone’s blog to take pictures of roses in seed catalogs, scan them and print on card stock to use a background for Zentangle Inspired art. I thought — why not scan some of my actual flower paintings, copy them and do the doodling. SO– here are a few results. This one , an abstract landscape done with water color crayons and black Sharpie markers, turned out pretty good.
Then I took two floral paintings, scanned, printed and added the doodling.
And last, I took some other pictures I had in my computer for an idea to paint them later and did the same:
By printing the images, you don’t have the problem of the pen clogging when you use it over watercolor or other paint.
I like them! How about you?
