Secret Garden


As you can see, I've been drawn into flowers lately, but they're not just flowers, they're fab grungy flowers from the PA Eclectica range by Lin Brown aka Yours Artfully.  I was also inspired with one of Lin's projects which you can see below.  This is my version of it using the grungy flowers.


This is Lin's original which I took the inspiration from.

PanPastelUK have a colour theme this week, which is blue, so I'm entering my corrugated piece for it.

You always manage to twist a flower so it's not a flower. Fab make

Fabulous interpretation of Lin's piece Sam. I love it and think I need several items you've showcased on this smashing piece. Those two stencils are a must and Lin's flowers.

Absolutely love this, Sam - the colours are gorgeous, as is the scripty stamping on the arch, and the Latin letters are one of my favourite stencils - brilliant! Sorry to be behind (yet again)... I've been having nightmares with Blogger in the evenings, so trying to squeeze in some day time visiting.

As I said on Twitter Sam, I love it and am truly flattered that you liked my piece to have a go at your own version. It probably feel like we are all ganging up on you for using flowers now, but I'm delighted that you decided to give them a go.

Love these flowers à la Sam. And the creation is super!! Thanks Sam, for the tip and I think I will try it out on some mini canvasses like you said, because I don't dare to spray or paint it right on the portrait. Have a very nice evening!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
