I think they might be Daisies...

This started off a watercolor with Hydrus watercolor but it needed something more so there is some acrylic on it also. Just trying to stay true to my mixed media artist status. It started off really ugly and bad. I don't think the Hydrus disperses quite as well as the tube watercolor. I outlined it with India ink then smudged it with a Stabilo. I also used Caran d'ache for the stem, some stamps with while acrylic and a little digi-magic. And of course my motto is, "When all else fails... PUNCHANELLA!"
I will be in Greenville seeing little Baby Marc until Monday so I will leave you with a video of the Remains of the Day Journal tomorrow.

It's a wonderful page. If they aren't daisies then they must be poinsettias but they really do look more like daisies and are also quite pretty. I love the colors.

I used your calligrafun lettering in a journal I made in a class given by Laure Ferlita. I was able to make the lettering coordinate with the painting I did for each page. I really enjoy using it. If you'd like to see it it is here.

Have fun on your visit.
