buds/blooms - TMTA


This is my ATC for this week's theme of buds/blooms. The background is a napkin and I did some watercolor blooms over the colorful background. I loved the quote because it always seems the earth is dead after a long cold winter but the flowers always come back to remind us it's not.

What a beautiful result from a fascinating technique! I, too, think that quote is wonderful. ( Thanks you for visiting my blog. I am waiting for my peonies to bloom as well....we've had weather setback in the form of snow and freezing temperatures. ;-) Nothing is certain in the spring!)

Fascinating technique... I would have thought they would be too absorbent, but obviously not!!! I love the way you have done this...
