I love these very elegant flourishes. I used them as tree branches in my design.I first painted the flourishes with gesso. I mixed green and brown watercolors, and dabbed on a little green chalk ink to paint them. I used a small paintbrush and water to take off a little paint from the centers. I put a bit of white paint on and them and blended it with the edges of the green.
I started by painting the birds with gesso, I used birds from Botanical Tea papers as inspiration for the colors. I penciled in some lines to separate top from bottom. I put a little of pink and brown on the the top. On the bottom I used a little blue, and a little green.
On the heart I used gesso followed by pearl Viva Decor paste.
