First, start by prepping your watercolor paints by misting them with water. Then, tape off your art journal page with painter’s tape. I am just going to start by getting some yellow watercolor on my paintbrush and tapping it with another brush over my page to create a splatter effect. Let dry or dry with a heat tool.

Next, I’m going to grab some dark blue watercolor paint and create some flower petals along with some more splatters. I’ll also add some green watercolor petals too. Let dry or dry with a heat tool.

Now, let’s draw! Take your Molotow Blackliner pen and add some circles in your yellow centers to create some texture there. Then, draw out your petals and add some detail lines on each petal. This does not need to be perfect! Have fun with it.
