For this 2-page spread, I first made the flowers by spraying white coffee filters with Adirondack ink sprays and then making three different styles of flowers with them. Then I made the mixed media background using acrylic paints, stamps, inks, and various household items such as plastic canvas to paint and add texture to the page. I painted the stems and added doodling around the stems and leaves with a white gel pen.
Here are a couple of close ups of some of the details...
I took the next photo from a side angle so that you could see the dimension of the flowers.
I would love to hear your thoughts. How about leaving me a comment? I'd love to hear from you. Thanks! Have a fabulous day!

I have made some of the tags to go inside. I used vanilla cardstock, then rubbed three colours of ink onto my craft mat , spritzed the ink with water, then rubbed the tags into the inks to colour the backgrounds. Then I wrote the positive affirmations and did some zentangling or stamping to decorate the tag. Here are four that I have made so far.
I'm working at keeping all my thoughts positive and I contemplate each affirmation as I tangle.
Happy Tangling! :D

My friend Linda and I made these cards one day and we decided to decorate the inside with much the same scene but in a much more muted way so that the sentiment could be stamped on top of it.
Here is the inside of the card.
Next we decorated the envelope to match. Here is the envelope.
We made a similar card using different colours. We did this one with shades of blue and purple. We also decorated the inside and envelope as well.
It's never easy to have to send sympathy cards, but hopefully they help bring comfort to the family.
Take care. :)
