Challenge #182 - Flowers for All

For this challenge we are asking you to think FLOWERS.  Whether they are starting to bloom where you are or slip into their off season slumber, imagine and create using the theme of 


FLOWERS for All

Then share that creativity with us.

What have the Poobahs been creating?

Well...let's see

Chat Noir slipping in something so out of character for me that I'm keeping very quiet about it......pink for heavens sake!  Oh well, flowers there are indeed, and I think they're growing on me.... 



I used a lovely old Stampin' Up designer paper that I've had for years and finally decided it had been on the shelves for far too long.   Lets see what the others have been up to.....

Deena here:  I love using flowers on my project....we still have a little bit of snow in our neck of the woods and it has been cold and gloomy the last few weeks....it feels at though spring will never arrive this year...so the only flowers we will be seeing for a bit are fake ones, but that is okay.... 


Electra here: This may or may not be a Mother's Day Card. Since my daughter doesn't read THIS blog, let's keep that to ourselves, shall we?  If you happen over to my own blog, Mum's the word.  :-)

Rosemary here and I've been trying to get better at art journaling and here's my attempt at letting go the idea that it has to be perfect and instead focus on the feeling and meaning of the page(s).   So, here's what I created.  I liked using vibrant stamped flowers to reinforce my conclusion - that no flowers would ever bloom if you didn't take a change planting the seed.  These pages had me gessoing, watercoloring, stamping, doodling, scribbling, and so on - very freeing, very expressive, and cathartic.   Even the sound of the pen scratching into the rough surface of the pages felt like I was etching them into my own brain as a message to myself to really take these realizations to heart.



So, we've given YOU some inspiration and hopefully you are ready to try adding FLOWERS to your work.  Then share them with us, linking us to your lovelies in the comments below.

THANK YOU!!!!
