Bright flowers to celebrate spring, women, and art


Ok, I started this last night, but it was originally meant to be very different. When I woke up this morning I started creating dozens of bold bright flowers in PSP (using a script by Jules' Junk) and the rest just flowed from those.
The quote is by Georgia O' Keefe, and although I think I'm better at expressing myself through words rather than through images, I just love the idea that both are nothing more than ways of expressing ideas and feelings and beliefs.
I made this piece for the floowing challenges:
4x4 Friday - International Women's Day
S2G challenges - use green (after deciding that I didn't want any foliage, I made sure that several of the flowers used green shades)
Pals Paper Arts - Spring
Gingersnap Creations - Celebrate. Maybe mine isn't a typical celebration, it is meant to celebrate creativity and women and the coming of spring.
C.R.A.F.T. - Mother's Day or flowers.
Creative Card Crew - Celebrations
Theme Thursday - Art words
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope this image brings a little sunshine inspiration into your day.
