Re: Plant Parade October 2011

Sounds good so far - should be able to do several but then again, maybe, I should wait for the references

Mine are 4"x6" also. I like using them, they are in a block so they lay flat.

Re: Plant Parade October 2011

Well then is there enough to get ya started....LOL Now it's your turn to trek around the mountains and find 'one' of the literally thousands of glorious flowers that grow all over the world in the MOUNTAINS. I'm sure your taste
'buds' will be satisfied and I truly hope you will think this fun.

Gotta get to work see ya later then.. Oh if you find something else in your journey, would be nice if you would post a little thumbnail of it with your finished work, please n thank you

Hugs all round,
Elaine

Re: Plant Parade October 2011

I came earlier and stuck this with my glue pot - didn't comment cos the pics weren't up ....... never mind, I think we can all still manage to view 'em

They're very pretty aren't they? Love wild flowers - from the humble daisy and on... and on ... and on .....

PS - love the way you presented the invitation Elaine - top marks for that

Re: Plant Parade October 2011

Beautiful Invitation Elaine! So that's how "the Passports" came into it!
This will be a really interesting Plant Parade. Can't wait to get started. I've a few NZ mountain flowers that I've been wanting to paint. Thank you for this.
