Plant Parade May, 2014

Welcome to the Plant Parade Challenge of May, 2014

Little Josie and I are inviting you to a Tea Party this month!!!


(Spritzer)

We are going to dress up in our Hats with Flowers on them and prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day and Spring!! Oh, did I mention HATS? Yes, we are painting Hats decorated with Flowers. . .you select the Hat and the Flower/Flowers! (People wearing the Hats in your painting will be optional.)

• Reveal date: Not before May 25th
• Use any medium to get these beauties ready for the reveal date!
• Explore the fun shapes and patterns
• Design the creation by making it personally yours. . .who knows, you may decide on a career as a Hat Designer!!
• Use the refs: that are posted here, in the RIL, or use your very own!
• Post any refs of Hats with or without flowers on them that we might want to use, if you have any. . .just make sure they are copyright free. . .
• Share your discoveries and setbacks, but do not show your work until the 25th!!
• Check out the Greenie’s Room for chatting, too! All are invited there each month!!

Come on, get dressed up and let’s have a great Tea Party in our Hats with Flower/Flowers!!

Hey Katarina - what a superb challenge! I love it! It's time for me to do another painting like this - one of my favourite works was a ref by Dewi - years ago!
Thank you m'dear! ... Jumpin' for joy!

Re: Plant Parade May, 2014

Lovely idea Katherine.
Maureen, it reminds me of your beautiful painting too and went to check if the ref is still there.
Happy painting everyone

Re: Plant Parade May, 2014

Maureen, I thought you would enjoy us coming to England for Tea Time this month!! I did have High Tea at the Brighton Royal Pavilion a few years ago with my DIL. . .I have never seen so much food!! It was delicious!! I had that in mind when I happened upon little Josie! ^^^ (My DIL's name, too.) Can't wait to see what everyone creates!!

Jean, oh, I can hardly wait to see what your sister made for you!! Were you the fanciest? Dressing up this month will be fun!! Glad you are joining in on the fun!!!

Dewi, so glad you are on board, too!! Would love to see your ref!

Peeps, don't forget, you can put your hat on a table, on a stand, on a nail on the wall, or on an animal . People are optional.

Hugs, Katherine

Re: Plant Parade May, 2014

Ohhhhhhhhh! Now that's certainly one we've never had before! I like it....I love it! What endless possibilities. Now....I just need to put my thinking hat on (sorry about the bad joke but I couldn't resist!) This will be a lot of fun, thanks Katherine.

Re: Plant Parade May, 2014

Yikes! That is certainly a challenge, especially if the referenced hat doesn't already have flowers on it! I'm not very good at putting things in that aren't in the reference (no imagination! or perhaps it's just that my imagination doesn't get detailed enough!)... Well, we'll see what happens...

Oh, Viv, so glad you are on board with the Hats and Flowers!! Think we will have so much fun with this topic!! Can hardly wait to see your creation!!!

Lea, shhhhh. . .if you will put hats and flowers in 'Search', you might solve your stress. . .shhhhh. . .I did not tell you to do that. . .remember if Maureen says anything. . .shhhhhh!! Or, you could paint Maddie's Tea Time hat!

Wheeeee, we off to a great start!!

Hugs, Katherine

Re: Plant Parade May, 2014

A wearable plant parade! What a lovely idea. I was watching the Kentucky Derby yesterday, and I kept thinking all those hats would look so much better with real flowers on them! I'm very excited to join you all this month.

Re: Plant Parade May, 2014

Sandy, welcome!!! The Kentucky Derby's hats have inspired me, too! They have such beautiful 'fluff' and I think that they would be perfect for our Tea Party!! Glad you are joining in on the fun!!

Hugs, Katherine

Re: Plant Parade May, 2014

Katherine - I'm really on the ball this month. I've signed up for an Oil Pastel Workshop over the next 2 weekends.

Oil Pastels are one medium that I've always intended to explore more, so...the Oil Pastel Workshop. I've done a little bit of reading on OP's, and apparently you can use the same (or similar) supports that you can with soft pastels.

So, Ive drawn out my hat with flowers on Colorfix sanded paper, and I'm all ready to begin it on Saturday! Keen eh!
I hope it turns out ok so I can post it on the 25th.
The drawing looks ok, so I hope the rest of it goes as well, at least I've got plenty of time in case it all goes wrong!
