April Showers Bring May Flowers

Jen Matott here again! This week, I thought I'd share a piece of artwork I made!  I don't know about you, but I'm ready for warmer weather, sunny days, and flowers!  In anticipation of spring, I  just finished this piece using a white, large paper umbrella.

Umbrella301 I used Gelatoes for the drippy color that represents rain on a paper umbrella.  Then, I sprayed white Prima flowers with my Gelato sprays.  I glued LOTS of them to the umbrella and added some bling and punched paper butterflies.

Here you can see the blue metallic, dark blue, and green Gelato colors that were blended and the slight shimmer of the metallic gelatos.

I really love how it came out and will be displaying this in my art room at school!  What a fun way to welcome Spring indoors.  I wish you sunny, spring days ahead!  I'll be back with a technique using the Art GRIP ® Aquarelle watercolor pencils!

Wow Jen! I have photosensitivity (allergic to SUV/sun) and was telling friends that I was thinking of buying some oriental style parasols and decorating them for my few ventures outdoors this spring/summer. I saw this and I am SO impressed. The umbrella is gorgeous and now I'll have to do more than talk about personalizing a few umbrellas! Thanks for the inspiration :)
PS - I'll be sharing this on my FB page!
