Earth laughs in flowers... 27

Mona Pendleton | Friday, July 31, 2015 @ 9:01 PM | , ,

Hi there! I'm quite honored and excited to share with you that I have the honor and privilege to join along with the fun and inspiring Words 2 Scrap By challenge blog! Thank you ladies for the invitation and inspiration! Please be sure to visit the site here and join along in the fun!
The current challenge is to create a project based on one of the following book titles:

Where the Wild Things Are 
The Good Earth 
Eat, Pray, Love 
Winnie-the-Pooh 
Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus
I was inspired to create a couple of projects based on the book The Good Earth. The book title made me think of the famous quote: 
                                  Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
 which inspired me to paint a few pages from an oversized pad of paper measuring 18" x 24". Lately I've been practicing painting abstract flowers in hopes of painting something that I'm proud to hang on a wall in my home. The first one up is rather colorful:
It was rather messy but I had so much fun finger painting the flowers!
To finish off the painting, I used the Prima Floral Petites stencil to randomly add additional interest and contrast:
Here's a photo of a step taken along the way:
Up next is my second painting featuring a vase full of blossoms:
Lots of fun finger painted flowers:


Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoyed my projects! Please be sure to visit the Words 2 Scrap By challenge blog to see all the fabulous DT inspiration and hopefully join along in the fun!
Be Sweet ;)

Finger painting has a whole new meaning now!! I adore your paintings, Mona, & am so glad to have you designing with us at W2SB! You could open a gallery with your paintings & home decor--I'd say Palm Springs or La Jolla or Sedona!
