Q&L #06 - FLOWER

I went with the permitted plural for the Craft Barn's Current Challenge prompt of Flower and/or Travel.

I really love colour (you'd never guess I used to be a Goth where black ruled the day!) so even using white space is a challenge for me.

I drew in the hair shape with a pencil, covered it with Wild Honey distress paint and yay my only yellow distress marker is the same colour so I low lighted it with that and highlighted it with a bright yellow marker and further with a gold gel pen.

So anyway I just added a diecut title and the flowers and a few leaves and left it at that, and am trying to resist anything further.


I used the "All About Eve" song "Flowers in our Hair" which is now playing in my head all the time!

I learn something about you every time I visit. I had NO idea you were a goth in a previous lifetime (grin). Your love of color certainly doesn't belie that image. I was impressed by how subtle this page was, and how you allowed the white space to take over some of the page.

I confess I'd never heard that song before, but I like it and how you illustrated it.
