Here's a cyber bouquet of wildflowers especially given to all my blogging friends....they're at their peak and boldly showing their blooms in every field and road edge. If I could send you all a vase full, I would!.
I 'd never tried flower pounding so with all the color profusion, I had to give it a go to see what would happen. Some of the flowers came out better than others, both with color and clarity and of course I would never try washing this, I just lightly rinsed in cold H2O... The best and truest of the colors was the brown that sooo resembled "poo" both in tint and consistency after pounding! I'm going to try again using just green leaves, mostly ferns, in a more planned composition. Maybe a stitching base for the the Stitch Along that I'm sorely behind with. If you're a reader of this blog, you know that I have to savor this precious weather when I can and although my stitching is spotty , I am "filling the well" for when the snow flies.
I almost forgot....
