Focus on Life - Week 7 - Flowers

Here in my world there is no evidence of anything blooming or coming to life.  Snow everywhere....and I was stumped as to what I could take a picture of.  I thought of going to the grocery store - but didn't.  I wasn't going to post but suddenly this AM I thought of an Art Journal page I made a few days ago.  Our assignment was to make flowers out of anything you have on hand so I gathered up tissue paper and began to form three different flowers.  The dimension compared to the other three which are stenciled and painted give them realistic qualities which I like.  This certainly brightened my surroundings since there are no real blooms outside.

 Here are my flowers for this week.  I hope this qualifies

Very pretty flowers. I remember helping my cousin make tissue paper flowers for the tables at her wedding when I was a teen. Your journal pic reminded me of that.
