There are always flowers......

....for those who want to see them - Henri Matisse

I love that quote and it seemed the perfect thing to put on this oval hanging I made over the weekend.  The base is a wooden and plaque which I covered in gesso and then sponged on various different colours of acrylic paint and distress paint, whilst it was still damp I spritzed with water and blotted  with another piece of sponge to remove some of the paint to give a ditressed look. Added some stamping then,crackle stamp and foliage (Sheena Douglass), to give a little more interest.  After that i made a variety of flowers with the Tim Holtz 'Tattered Florals' die and coloured with Dylusions spray inks, Cosmic Shimmer sprays and some Radiant Rains which I sponged on.......result lovely bright shimmery flowers and bright orange hands!!!!! Lots of fun though :)

Thought I'd enter this in this weeks Take a Word challenge where the theme is Botanical. Also in Country View Crafts June challenge where the theme is die cuts
