Foxgloves, Look At This Beauty!

IMG_1487

I know why the bees are so attracted to Foxgloves. Look at this beauty!

When I think of my childhood I picture Foxgloves. They intrigued me. Even the name conjured up childish imaginings. They will forever by synonymous with my British memories of woodland fields and deserted railroad tracks.

Mixed Media, Flowers For A Friend

IMG_1506

I continue to try my hand at this and am finding it very relaxing. You start with an idea and it can take on character as you go. I got my hands very dirty with this one.

I am in the process of using up supplies so I am putting off purchasing lovely mixed-media supplies. However when I get to the USA I might have to expand my supplies a little.

I made this canvas for a friend. The flowers I made from pages of a book and then painted and decoupaged them.
