So here are the finished pieces: "Flowers - I Love 'Em!" and "Beauty is a Flower", respectively. I splattered with white and sponged with gold paint to highlight some areas, and added various yarns and threads. I wanted an organic, tangled look, which would reflect the state of my garden most of the time! A flower-related quotation for each piece, printed on transparent organza, was the finishing touch. I decided to make the text relatively small so the viewer would have to come close to read it and investigate the multitude of textures (which unfortunately the photos don't really show).
