Sunflower Season


I’m not sure how we got to the end of August so quickly, but I’m excited… it’s sunflower season, fall sports, school, routine (but still warm and sunny) days. Love this time of year.

I was gone over the weekend to teach Copic Marker classes in Charlotte, North Carolina, and I had to sneak into my stamp room this morning because an “order of adorable” was waiting for me when I returned home. Purple Onion Designs had a fun sale last week, and I couldn’t pass up some of cute blooms designed by Stephanie Ackerman.


Here I used Mixed Middles Flower and left the middles out entirely. I stamped the flower in a pale brown ink and then outlined with Kirarina Wink opaque marker candy glitter pens from Copic. It’s a super easy way to add a pop of color to your images without traditional coloring. Very fun!

Being a good Kansas girl, I can’t resist a sunflower. There’s a 60-acre field of the beauties near my brother’s home that should be ready for photographic splendor in the next week or so… If I can make it over there, I’ll share a few photos here.

For now, let’s just all think fall beauty with paper and ink! Let me know if you share any fun sunflower projects. I’d love to see them!
