Tattered Floral Challenge

I have been wanting to create a small art journal so when I saw Tim's tattered floral challenge I was inspired!
Here is the finished journal 
And here are some close-ups of a few of the other flowers I made using a whole host of different materials including book text, crinoline, burlap, tissue paper, paper towels, tree bark, watercolors and even screen.  It was fun finding different things to make flowers from.  Thanks for the challenge Tim!

March 12 tags of 2013 and March Canvas Create

Been super busy with my new job - so little time to create!  But I squeezed in some me time and accomplished the March Tim tag and the March Canvas Create.
I can't wait to have more time to play with my new Distress Paints, I can already tell that I love them :)
Here's my Tim tag
I decided to put the wording at the bottom and add butterlies on pins at the top for a springy look - they make me happy!
Here's my Canvas Create for the month
I gave it to my mom to use in her spring decorations, she loved it!
Well - off to eat dinner and try to squeeze in some tattered florals, hopefully I'll meet the deadline for Tim's challenge, wish me luck!

Playing with watercolor

Ok, so the first part of my watercolor class with Mitsi B was playing with paint.
I didn't have an agenda, just put down watercolor paint and played with salt, rubbing alcohol, derwent inktense blocks, sandpaper and pencils.  I think it's a hot mess but I really had fun and loosened up.
Might use a couple of these in to make flowers in the Tim Holtz tattered florals challenge.
