Fusion: Floral Wall





I have this oh-so-talented crafty friend who likes to "card everyone" and she sent me this sweet stem of flowers - stamped on watercolor paper.  Watercoloring scares me and I think she was telling me to be brave and go for it!  I didn't dive into the deep end of the pool but I did use water.  I scribbled some zig markers on blocks and painted with an aquapainter - not too scary - maybe I will swim out farther next time!  Thank you Michele!

I was inspired by both the photo and the sketch this week at Fusion!

I'm so glad Michele encouraged you to do some watercoloring, Linda...Great job, too ~ Your blooms are so pretty, and I'm drooling over your woodgrain background! Such a pretty take on the challenge! Barb xx

Your sweet stem of blooms is so pretty Linda and perfect for the Fusion inspiration this week (which I love, by the way!) I think your soft colouring is really pretty - you should have a go at the watercolouring thing, I'm sure you'll do better than you think!

You've done wonders with those Zigs! The texture in the background and your lovely sprigs are so beautiful together. :)

Wow, these flowers are gorgeous and really pop against the textured "wall"!

Personally - I swim the other way!! Watercoloring requires letting go of control and that is so not me. It does seem to work for you - your flowers are lovely and I love that you showed them off with the simple blue background.
