Artful Blooms

I made most of this piece when I attended Leandra's workshop at the NEC last month. It showcases the lovely new PaperArtsy stamps both from Jofy and the lovely Lin Brown.

All I have done is added the sentiment and the dragonfly to finish it off.

You can see Lin's stamps were used in the background using Fresco Finish paints.

The dragonfly and sentiment are from an old set called Tops and tails.

I love finding new art quotes and this is so true.

"There is no must in art because art is free."
Wassily Kandinski

Enjoy the rest of the week and hopefully you have some 'free' time.

I managed to get to this workshop in the end, not sure what I'm going to to do with yet, I'm thinking of making a journal, and using the panel as the cover, I do so need some more of these stamps though. Your panel looks great with the sentiment and dragonfly on
hugs and best wishes

Hi Brenda, love the colours you used with Lin's beautiful stamps and your background is wonderful. That beautiful dragonfly is one of the first stamps I ever bought - love it too. Hugs, Anne x

Brenda, I wish we had some decent workshops around, but we don't sadly! This is so fun and full of Spring, which we will be in the 80's today! Hugs!

Jenny Marples said...

Love the background Brenda - it's one of those you really want to examine in real detail. And then you have topped it beautifully with the flowers/dragonfly/sentiment. Hugs, Jenny x
ps. you've picked a quote from another of my favourite artists!

Du bist ein Schatz, schreibst so liebe Kommentare und versuchst auch noch die deutsche Übersetzung.
