Farewell to summer: RosePosted: September 19, 2015
Another farewell to summer card, this time roses. We are enjoying the most beautiful weather at present so the farewell to summer is not too painful!
I painted this one myself with distress stains then added one little stamped sentiment. You cannot tell in the photo but the brown looking paper is actually black and gold glittery paper, not a shiny glitter a subtle glitter which works in well with the olive tones of the leaves. (If you like the look of handpainted roses check out Lydia’s recent roses with the artograph and brusho. It is a cool technique.) My plan for a while has been to be sketching and painting regularly but I am just not in the habit yet. I know a little every day is the way to improve. As my kids would say. “Just do it!”
