Mixed Bouquet Notebook 2

Here is another notebook using the Mixed Bouquet wheel. I LOVE using wheels because (with a cartridge in them) you can cover a lot of card stock in a short period of time. These are SO easy to color in too. You just need ink pads and sponges. I begin with what I know I see in any design. For this one I knew the round circles with the tiny circles are flowers so I colored all of them Only Orange. Then I knew what was leaves and stems and colored them with Old Olive or Garden Green. It depends on what I think looks better with the Only Orange and in this case it was Old Olive. Then I filled in any areas left with Bashful Blue. And you're done!!! Add some layers and it can be used on a notebook or on a card! The beaded pen was done the same way, wheeling on the design and coloring with sponges. If you're going to make more than one I recommend you wheel on the label sheet first, color it all in and then cut it to fit the pen. It will save you a lot of time.

Thank you for looking!
