I have this big beautiful apple tree with the pinkest blossoms beside our little rental house. It is glorious this year, so full of flowers you can hardly see anything else. I wish it could last longer as it takes my breath away.
we can’t forget the little apple tree next door that has the prettiest white blossoms.
This was such a fun lesson I made two. I love working with lettering and love to doodle the alphabet but this lesson was hard for me to do at first until I figured out that I wasn’t relaxed doing it. Once I relaxed I didn’t have any problems. For the water colours I made my own palette using waste water colour paper and applying the colour to that and picking it up from there into my brush. I will never buy another water colour palette again, this worked so well.
This page is right from the lesson. I love working with water colours. I left the letter on this one blank but I think they look bare and need work. I have to leave them for a couple of days to decide.
I wanted to do an oval piece with my chosen word “Value”, which reminds me to value myself and treat me like I treat others in my life.
Grandma’s Garden Memories was created for the Digital Scrapbooking Studio’s birthday bash, week 1 using two of the Pantone autumn colour palette. The blue and green reminded me so much of the morning glories that used to grow on my grandmother’s porch when I was just a toddler. I can still recall the heat of summer, sitting under the shade of the flowers and leaves, hearing the buzz of the bees as they flew in and out and a wonderful, peaceful, secure feeling. So this little kit is all about my grandmother and that day on her porch.

Another little personal use mini kit for the Pixel Scrapper site The lilacs in this little kit are taken from photos in my old garden, thus the name Lilac Memories. Lilacs not only look stunning they have a heavenly aromatic scent as well.
