Perhaps it is the time of year and the lack of blooms that make flowers so attractive to me at the moment. Or perhaps it's the perusal of wonderful Rachel Ashwell books featuring marvellous roses, even reading of Tonya Todman's heritage rose farm is terribly exciting!
The other thing I've been delving into is my silk supply and silk paints. I'm working on fashioning blooms and these ones have been used for hair accessories for my long haired girls. I'm pleased with the results but now need to work on presenting the flowers in a more tidy fashion ie. the backs don't look nearly as nice as the fronts! I do so like the hand painted ones.
What do you think?
