Just love how you took the inspiration photo and let the painty colours flow! A gorgeous page spread, with those airy words taking pride of place on the opposite side. I've got some similar "handwritten" words and haven't inked mine up for an age... must dig them out.

I really do not envy you fussy cutting all those little flowers but the finished effect is stunning! Such a great mix of colours in the inspiration picture and you have picked them up beautifully. The flat backed gems are just the perfect finishing touch too.

I hope you have a lovely weekend and keep safe. Hugs, Anne xxx

Tracey I love this spread. I love the blobs of color and those beautiful flowers. That is really clever and such a joyful page. And it must have taken a lot of work to cut those little flowers, but I am glad you did. The results are amazing. Thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey and Mia's challenge. And happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

I thought Jo was the fussy cutting queen, but now I think you might have just won the honor. This was an amazing post and a beautiful spread. Thanks, too, for sharing this with us using Mia's theme at Art Journal Journey.

A fabulous page Tracy, great to see how you transformed those blobs of colour with all the fussy cut flowers (you definitely have patience - but so worth the effort). Love the words on the opposite page.
