    Hello and welcome back! Nabaa here from @whimsical.doodles. Wow has it been an exciting couple of days for Archer and Olive! Have you checked out the amazing new products yet? I am most excited to get my hands on the Watercolor Journal! 

    Anywho, getting back to today's post, we have another fun entry showcasing the Blackout Journal! For today's entry, I'll be creating this floral frame in my Blackout! Book. Head over to @casually.created to check out the original inspiration! 

    And BONUS! - you also get free printable floral practice sheets! To download, head over to the bottom of the page and enter your email! 


    Here are the materials you'll need to recreate this floral frame:


    1. Start by creating the frame.

    Use a ruler to mark where you would like to lay it down and using the white gelly roll, draw in the frame.

    2. Start adding florals

    Once you have your border drawn in, start by adding in any type of florals you want! You'll notice I generally like to start with white - adding in stalks and leaves first before going in with the second color to add in flowers and details!

    Continue adding in details where you find necessary until you're happy with your frame!

    3. Add lettering

    After you're done filling in the border, add in your favorite quote! I used the faux calligraphy method to add in the quote. Adrienne from @studio80design has this covered as part of her tutorial here
