My original Let's Make Art post was well received so I decided to do a Let's Make Art 2 post featuring a simple technique for painting vintage looking flowers. These were seriously easy, too friends! Gotta say, I LOVE painting and sharing my process with all of you. Once you know how something is done you can change it up and make your own version. Change the colors to match your decor and go nuts. My favorite part of this painting is adding the dimensional paint at the end. It's then that everything just comes together.
Enjoy! xoxox, Mark
My new addition!

This version has a gold background instead of black. LOVE the gold, too!
