The heat wave has finally relented! It was unbearable. Hot, sticky and sometimes stormy. Last night we had one final storm, with tornado watches (fortunately nothing here, just a lot of broken branches and overturned garbage cans) and afterwards it cooled off. This morning is beautiful and cool again. I've been busily making flowers, flowers and more flowers. I figure if I make enough of them until I get sick of it, I won't ever have to buy Primas again. Seriously! And I kind of like mine better, and I can always find the color I want!
I needed to get away from pastel colors for a bit. I love soft colors, but I needed to make something bold and earthy. So I decided on an autumn theme. I water colored a piece of paper in Adirondack inks again, Raisin, Pesto, Butterscotch and Ginger, then used the same spectrum pad for the leaves. I couldn't find an appropriate sentiment, so I left it blank. I can always go back and add one if I decide later.
