Illustration Friday - Cultivate

Spring is definitely in the air!

Perfect weather and lots of beautiful iris' and tulips and 
other bright beautiful flowers that make me smile. 

While gearing up for the local art fair I've made a series of fun mixed media
flowers inspired by the beautiful scenery amidst the busy bustling city. 

The last time I was at the local fine art store I found KHADI sketchbooks and immediately fell in love. The paper is made from recycled t-shirts! I bought the rough texture spiral bound book which ended up being the perfect size for small detailed work like my flowers (it's about 6x8").


  1. I love the combination of the black lines and the watercolor and the rough paper. Beautiful! I have some watercolor paper made from T-shirts too, but from a different manufacturer. It's my favorite!

  2. lovely, it seems an embroidery.
