Memories Embossed Into My Heart
It’s a funny thing about flowers, they escort memories just at the sight of their little faces each season.
As if you have forgotten that special time in a chapter. Then you see that face of the flower and the memories come rushing back.
I walked through gardens of pansies in a very special chapter, and the sight of it’s reflection this morning got me finding music that I enjoyed Once upon a time...
Sigh. Well, let’s pour a cup of tea, listen to the sweet sound of music that holds memories dear and sweet, sit at the kitchen table and let’s take out the paintbox and paint these little faces.
An AquaBoard which has a lovely watercolor surface seemed perfect to capture the little folds in each pansy petal.
I painted pansies using watercolor paint and then embossed pieces and bits throughout the painting to add light and texture.
Embossing and watercolor...
hmmmmmmm I guess that means mixed-media.
Let’s take a print of another watercolor design
and pop it into the perfect frame capturing a vignette.
How about a charm? Let’s take a tiny print, hand-paint it with a bit of Perfect Pearls, pop it into a 2 x 2 charm with glass on both sides and add a bit of garden ribbon.
Pansies, a cup of tea, painting memories into my day, listening to enchanting music. Embossing my memories into each little pansy on the canvas board.
What do pansies remind you of, pour yourself a cup of tea and walk down the lanes that lead to sweet memories and the delightful face of the pansies from garden paths long ago...
The song for this post is One Day In Your Life.
