I plan on making a background with scraps, watercolors, soluble crayons and whatever else I find. The best part about this process is that I can do whatever I want…the worst part is that I find out that I don't know what I am doing.
So let's see what happens.
I decided I needed 2 pieces of paper …maybe do one of those panel art pieces where you can frame each one ; yet put them side by side. Still, thinking those sunflowers are too big.
Now I am ready to start making the background. I put all my little cut outs in a tray and start with the mod podge. I want to layer the background and experiment with stamping and blending.
Started to work with water-soluble crayons to damp out the white. Working with blending and using baby wipes to do so…read that somewhere on line. Still needs quite a bit of color and blending.
So I am going to let this be for today…which is very difficult for me. I placed my cut outs on the background but nothing is glued on yet as I need to mull this over a bit. I also changed a few of the shapes as I thought there was too much pattern going on. There's still so much to do, but I am not sure what. Check tomorrow or soon after to see what happens.
Being new at making art, I have to learn to let it evolve. The colors in the above photo are not the best (need to take photos in better lighting) we are having a blizzard today and snow is covering my skylight; therefore not the best lighting for my photos.

I am not in a hurry; and I will work on this some more tomorrow. ... what I love about making art the most is the surprises. One thing I know for certain, this piece is not close to being finished … and I took a big step by posting it, well, not that big, as who out there is really looking? Let me know if you are!
Please leave suggestions and/or comments if you are so inspired. I would love to hear what other artists have to say.
