Craft Barn Q&L: Flowers and/or Travel

Its amazing how quickly time flies.  Can you believe we are at the 6th quotes & lyrics challenge for the year already.   Check out the latest challenge and gorgeous entries HERE.

I've stepped away from my affirmation cards this time round, I fancied doing something just for fun and while I pondered I was listening to a Sandi Thom album. My choice:

"I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair!" 


I went totally OTT with the flowers!!  The background is my usual collaged papers, gesso and chalk pastels, this time in a soft lime. Flowers: dictionary pages where painted with watercolour (hot pinks, red, organe and yellow) and I used some old punches in various sizes.  The face is a stamp I purchased from etsy many moons ago, stamped onto tissue, adhered used matte medium and highlighted with my trusty chalks.  

Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave me a message for the last challenge.  
I really appreciate it.

Thanks for looking
