Southern Girls Challenge 'Nature'

Team Lou is focusing on 'Nature' this time round, so I thought I'd do my own kind of spin on it.  I'm not normally a flowery kinda girl but this kind of flower well yeah I like it!

As I said I thought I'd do something a bit different - this is water colour on canvas. I like to think of them as funky flowers, or depending on how some of them turn out freaky flowers!

So the idea here is to obviously paint the flowers on using water colour and then outline everything that you see.  Each person see's things differently too which is the great thing about it.  Here's a peek at what an area can look like before the outline and after.

Because it's water colour you can control the depth of colour.  It would look great as a layout background too - Just remember to first apply some clear gesso to your paper.

Welcome back it's that time again - yes another challenge!!!
This months challenge theme is party sponsored by Crafty Ribbons.  I took the theme of party and kinda went in the direction of invitation meets surprise. 

Here's what I came up with - hope you like it!

When I think about a party, even though I've never had one I think of a surprise party.  And so here the surprise is hidden on the inside. 

I used a resist pattern paper and then added some Heidi Swapp shine to it, I love the way that it sparkles!
Happy crafting everyone.
