It's time for the next Craft Barn Q&L Challenge, and the words this time are FLOWER and ROAD.
I've long been a fan of Emily Dickinson's quirky poetry, so have taken my inspiration from one of her poems;
The lovely flowers embarrass me.
They make me regret I am not a bee...
I'm sticking to the 10x8 format, using 300gsm card this time. Using my favourite Fresco acylic paints, I created a brayered background, with added stamped images. The main tulips were first stamped onto black card (using the same paint), then cut out.
I drew a couple of bees, and had a go at doing some different lettering.
And not a drop of blue paint found it's way onto the page!
Can I take this opportunity to thank all of you who have left comments on my previous submissions, the are really appreciated. I do look at all the entries, but can't comment on them all because I'm not a member of Facebook etc. Although at the moment I'm sticking to quotes, so many of the other entries remind me of favourite songs, which end up in my head for most of the day!
