Two post today...
After I wrecked a watercolour paper :)  I tried to make a design
with my initial D with gellatos, I tried blending it with water and
then my brush hahha, looked yucky but I wasn't through it out.
I went to the store across the road, they have stacks of potted
flowers for sale, I asked the cashier if I could take a few fallen one.
I brought 4 home cut the paper up,
put the flowers on, covered them with the blank piece,
pounded them with a rubber mallet,
they have to be a velvety kind to work well.
I let them sit over night, I used a phone card to scarp the petals
left on it.
I have some close ups below..

I love both sides, will use them somewhere, you Ladies should
give it a try, right from your own garden, preserve your gorgeous
blooms out there...
Thanks for visiting, hope this inspires you ladies with gardens, I'd
love to see your creations, have a fun creating sometime today..
