Those flowers were my starting point. His colors are 1930's muted. I created backgrounds that highlight the flowers (I hope). The background started off with old book pages. First I applied some texture with clear gesso through a word stencil. Next came chalk spray in a wonderfully deep and rich turquoise. When it was dry I rubbed in golden ink. This is also a really thick and creamy product, easy to rub in with fingers (like I did).
