How Does Your Garden Grow

Hi ya, I'm afraid this post should have been up on Tuesday but I didn't feel well, found out that my sinus paint that is bad at the moment wasn't just sinus but an infection I have left for months so it's spread, no wonder I have been feeling a little bit under the weather lol.  But at least today I have managed to be able to hold my head up enough to write a post.  I have another one as well, but think I shall wait for that in morning.
So I had the huge pleasure of being a Guest Designer over at Try It On A Tuesday Challenge Blog and this fortnight it is 'How Does Your Garden Grow' and I have done a rather large tag.  I was having a play around with some Paperartsy stencils, patterned paper and some old coasters, I initially saw an idea like this from the amazing Sue Carrington who's art is truly amazing and her work with Paperartsy are awesome. It was her that got me using stencil brushes and from then on stencilling has been my first love, I think a stencil is added on every project I have done since.  I got so far but then just left them, I wanted to make them into a hanging but didn't like it so another project just left on the side.  When I found out the challenge I realised this would be brilliant for the theme, and after lots of playing I made a bold background, it's the only background that seem to go with the whole piece.

I would like to enter the following challenges -
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy Creating :-)

This is so lovely kezzy, I particularly love the small tulip on top of the larger one. I never thought to do that! I am very sorry to hear you are poorly. Sinus pain is the worst,
