New techniques and new blooms

A combined-subject post, since both these things came about on the same day. Yesterday I got some nice macros of the rhododendrons and peonies in the yard; thought I'd share. And the artwork is a result of my latest "try-it Tuesday" challenge: easy image transfers. Believe it or not, for all the years I have been doing art, this is something I have put off learning. I think now I am hooked! The background is primarily watercolors, acrylics and embossing powders. The pearls and text are stamped on, the leaves and stem are acrylic, and the flower and face and tranfers.

Gorgeous subtle piece. I really like it. And I have yet to try transfers too.

Nici - this really is lovely! You did a great job! Congrats on winning the prize this week too! Yay!

I tried out the transfer process, but not in time to submit anything. I love the process and have several transfers ready to place into something!
