Love in a Mist

Hi All,

Hope you've had a great weekend :)

My OH summed ours up - it was rather busy and as we were settling for the night yesterday, he said he felt more tired than if he had worked. He's off to work today for the rest then!
I was pleased with the weekend as I managed to sell a few pieces of jewellery despite Valentine's day having passed. I'm looking forward to things starting to pick up now as the impact of Christmas diminishes.

At the beginning of next month I have an Art exhibition to take part in at Market Drayton. I'll be showing a couple of works with the Art Club. This one may yet be one of them if there is any extra hanging space.

I love this flower, Love in a Mist, it's so easy to grow. Lots of different colours and a light fluffy foliage that contrasts with heavier plants. I sprinkle a few seeds each year and then ignore them. They usually pop up where I haven't sown them too from previous years.

I think I may also use this picture printed up as the basis for a card, maybe some decoupage. What do you think? Maybe turn to portrait and add a sentiment? It will give me something to think about while I visit my parents today :)

Thank you to everyone who has left me comments on previous posts and if you leave one now - they are so much appreciated.

Have a great day and Happy Crafting :) x

  2. Absolutely gorgeous Janice! Love in a Mist is one of my favourites too, especially in this colour. Very beautiful flower and you've captured it perfectly.

  3. Oooo, lovely, Janice! I've never known the name of these flowers but I really like them. Wish I had a few more volunteers of them in my garden. :-D

  4. Your artwork is beautiful. I think this would look lovely on a card.

  5. Janice,

    Your paintings would make wonderful "Thank you" note embellishments. Ever think about getting them commercially printed onto thank you notes and sell them as packaged deals?

    I help a client of mine do this with her butterfly prints.

    Good luck with whatever you decide!

  6. Janice this is stunning! so so pretty
