I can't believe we're in the last several days of March already. Time is flying.
I want to share another page for Sheila's single flower challenge at Art Journal Journey. I am having a lot of fun with this challenge, and it is fun trying to figure out ways to use just one flower.
The lady on my page today has gone for too long of a bike ride as her flower is wilting. She doesn't look very sad about it though. I think she met someone special while out on her ride, and she is watching that person out of the corner of her eyes. To add some mystery, we can only guess who they are. Perhaps she got her flower from this mysterious friend.
I'm also going to link this page up to Mia's Craftlandia challenge which has a spring theme.
I created a watercolor background, and I also used a stamped bicycle, a hand drawn flower, a stamped and fussy cut bunny, some washi tape, a TH phrase sticker, a die cut branch, and some metallic paper trim and a sun. The happy lady is cut from a tag in an old FLOW magazine. I did color her and made her hair yellow to help the yellow in the background pop a bit more.
This next photo is another page from my Secret Garden journal.
Here's the opposite page from the same journal. This page doesn't work for a single flower at AJJ, but it is still bright and happy. Seeing there's no flowers blooming in my garden yet, I will enjoy them on a journal page.
I have one more piece of art to share today. How about some yellow sunshine?
The latest challenge at Tag Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Michele and she has picked mostly monochrome as her theme.
My tag's background was inked and stamped with some sunflower yellow. Then I used a darker yellow to stamp the flower bucket. I added some yellow washi tape, inked this lovely little lady with some more sunflower ink, and finished it off with some yellow paint dots. The girl needed something to sit on so I added the gold (although it looks black in the photo) printed washi tape. I thought about adding a bow to this tag, but it never worked quite the way I wanted it to so I left it off.
And unless the weather forecast changes overnight, we're supposed to get some rain today. Some art sunshine (and play too) will make up for the gloom.
Have a great start to your weekend!
