My first piece of art for the Flower Power challenge over on the Country View Crafts blog was determined by my choice of TH flower stamp, which I adore.
I began by Gessoing a page in my Girl's Annual, adding neutral fresco paints and choosing some papers to show off the flowers.
I stamped the flowers onto some sturdy watercolour paper and painted them very roughly with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I cut them out so that there was some of the cream background still there in order to make them stand out from the background.
I assembled my chosen papers and aged them a little, and added a poem from a book by Wordsworth.
The key just gave some added interest to the story.
I hope that this, and the fabulous work of my teams has inspired you to enter our challenge.
Thanks for looking.
