Wildflowers

August 16, 2017

 

Hello to all you wonderful craft-loving friends.  Today is my turn to post on Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with a design for Susan’s Garden Design Team.

The card I created features the wildflowers that grow right here in Maine.  The flowers are arranged in Susan’s Garden Notes Pottery Pitcher, a die that is made to look like an old enamel pitcher.  I love having the actual flowers to look at as I create them in paper.  Most of the wildflowers are found growing either in my field or along the roadside as I drive into town.  The one I could not find was the blue chicory.  I had my husband driving around to find some, but we were a few days too early and by the time I was ready to create the chicory they were in bloom.
