Inspired by Textures and Roses
This is another work inspired by Karlyn Holman's new book. I used pink mulberry paper (much as I used Unryu paper in the pears), to give the roses extra texture. The paper was added following an application of paint, dried, then covered with YES! glue, and repainted in various tones of pink and salmon. If I were to redo this, I would leave off the rose branches at the bottom of the vase; they seem awkwardly placed when viewing these on screen - but in real life, look as intended.
We're off to the gardens in Wilmington with two vans filled with guests. I won't be back until late tonight, so I'll have to catch up with everyone tomorrow after a day of meetings.
Have a great day!
