Inches x 13 The theme: Flowers

I didn't know what I was taking on when I took up the challenge of creating little works of art 1" x 1" - I thought ATCs were hard enough at 3.5" x 2.5".

All except the dried flowers have been embossed so they look like little shiny tiles - but it does not show up in the scan very well.

And these are magnified far bigger than the size they actually are!

One of my favourite flowers - Pink Echinacea

Oriental Style




Red Dahlia - where the light patches are,is where there is no embossing - looks fine though - but funny in this scan

Marigold centre - again shiny and embossed

Yellow echinacea - embossed and shiny - the bee does not look so prominent in real life - these are only 1" x 1" so very much enlarged on here.

Daisy - embossed and shiny

Morning Glory - Embossed and shiny

Layers of cut up poppy leaves on painted paper.

Stained glass - stamped and coloured, the bits drawn on it, the embossed all over

This is a tiny stem of Alchemilla Mollis which I have coloured red with chalks, mounted it on 'angels hair' paper then painted over it in gold
