With winter lasting forever (I still can’t quite believe the amount of snow we have had in the middle of March!) I am beginning to miss my flowers and plants, all the green leaves and little cheerful buds.
So inspired by the 365 patterns challenge…..
(For those that don’t know the 365 patterns a day creative design challenge is a collaborative event with lots of designers, if you like making patterns you’ll love it! To find out more drop by the caravan blog or take a look at my 365 Patterns!)
……I decided to start a new project The A-Z of flowers! It ties in wonderfully with 365 patterns and fits my love of sketching and designing floral prints.
As an avid gardener I have always had a garden brimming with flowers that changed constantly and an allotment (until I moved to Germany!) When I was younger I trained with the Royal Horticultural Society and worked for a fabulous small private run garden – it was a joy to work all seasons and although now I have traded the planting and growing with designing and pattern making I still love flowers!
Please feel free to join in – patterns, art, prints, mixed media – any type of art and design that you love …… just start with the letter A.
If you do join in tag things with #atozofflowers then we can check out each others designs and there is no pressure to do one every day or even every week, if you need a bit of inspiration or when the moment takes you go with it. (Please grab the blog button below and share the idea – it would make me very happy!)
I found a wonderful site to get the ideas flowing Flower Possibilities that lists a selection of flowers from A-Z, I have a few favourites, like Lillie’s that I definitely want to include and will be flicking through my gardening books and resources and hunting out and about with my camera to gather ideas for sketching!
Stay tuned for my A is for……..later
