My Valentine flowers and ATC no. 81

I thought you might like to see my fabulous Valentine flowers. I like my roses best on actual rose bushes growing in the garden so John found this wonderful alternative. They have such a rich, deep, mysterious blue/purple colour, I could look at them for ever!

I had a heavy cold, the first one for years and years. I take being ill as a personal insult and really hate giving in but going to bed early yesterday did the trick and I feel 100% better today. A good thing too as I'm teaching tomorrow. I was not in the mood for much arting but managed to spend the day making ATC no. 81 for my 100 ATC project. It's called Beauty is its own Excuse and has a rose tinted paper/fabric collage in the background, overlaid by a transparency from Artchix. To be honest I originally intended this for the lottery on the Artchix Yahoo site but I'm so chuffed with it, that I'm holding on to it and adding it to my 100 ATC project. You will see that roses figured in my Valentine's Day after all!

oh my! BOTH the flowers and the ATC are so lovely and beautiful, Frieda! I can see why you would want to keep both around you at all times. That ARTchix transparency image on your ATC is one of my all time faves, I use it in one of my photo art journals celebrating Steven & my wedding. It's perfectly romantic!
I am so glad you are feeling better, best wishes for your class!
