There are always Flowers

This is my latest contribution as a Stencilgirl Guest Designer. It's rather ironic that I made this some time ago thinking that by the time of posting (today!) the weather would be lovely and springlike. But you can never be complacent about the Scottish weather. An Arctic blast is crossing the country and some snow for higher ground (that's us!) is forecast. Poor daffodils and crown imperials! Hopefully they will recover from the shock. In the meantime just looking at the flowers in my art journal will remind me that spring is here, despite what it looks like outside.
 As always you can find a step-by-step tutorial for this spread (done in the A4 Dylusions art journal) on Stencilgirl Talk. It was inspired by one of my favourite flowers quotations by Matisse: "There are always flowers for those who want to see them".
There is a lovely bit of sparkly gold on these pages. Hopefully you are getting a bit of a glimpse. Just wish it was easier to capture it with the camera.
