THREE LITTLE FLOWERS

I am completely overwhelmed by the wonderful entries received so far for "Art Journal Journey's" "Deep in the Forest" theme.
There has been such artistry, happiness and love in each artwork.

The artwork to date is shown in the Pinterest site here.



For my second entry, I took three pages from my sketchbooks:

a little painting made with oil pastels, watercolours, watercolours pens, a purchased stamp (tiny flowers bottom right) and a made stamp (along the top),





a string of leaves painted with watercolours,





a background made with oil pastels and textile dyes





and after a happy morning playing with photo-editing, made this.




THREE LITTLE FLOWERS






I'm also linking to 
the "Soartful challenge" , theme "Leaves"
and "Try it on Tuesday" , theme "Animals".

Stunning work as usual, Sheila! I adore your leaves painted with watercolours. The tree flowers are fantastic and I love the cute grey animal with those funny legs. The tiny flowers stamp is fabulous too.

johanna said...

the creations you make out of separate pieces are incredible! and the "three" always fits into a fairy tale and thus into a Wood Scene! perfect!

Beo said...

What a cute little fox! Perhaps he will come to Germany one day... These tree flowers look as if they were smiling and and waving to him. And I have to say that I liked the colours before your playing with photo-editing as well as the ready picture.

ciao Beate
