Inspired By Nature

Finally, a few flowers have bloomed
and the buds are starting to Pop! on the trees and bushes.
Boy am I ready for Spring!

I have been working on a few little projects-
another set of planters, this set has green leaves.

A set of blossom hair pins...

and a pencil holder for my desk.

I'm also working on a mixed-media piece-to be posted when finished.

Seems like most of my projects are inspired by nature.
I love taking photos while hiking.
Most of my paintings are seascapes or gardens. 
 I make a lot of flowers for mixed-media pieces and for accessories.
And, I like to incorporate branches, leaves, moss, etc. into my work.

Nature gives me a feeling of peace and renewal.

What inspires you?

Hope you're having a great week!

All of your projects are really pretty, I love the jars, they don't look like ordinary jars at all now.
I also like the flower pins, really nice!

Hi Lynn, so happy to see you at Share Your Cup. Seems like I get so busy trying to play catch up that I miss getting around to old friends that I first met when I started blog hopping. Spring flowers are always such a welcome sight for me too. Love your pencil holder. Almost finished with our basement and I want to make some fun things like that for my craft room. I am also inspired by nature. Oh, and of course by junk. lol!

Hey Lynn, checking in with you, love the projects you have been doing. Spring has be really late arriving this year here in Michigan. Up at the cottage last weekend it snowing enough to cover the ground! What the heck! I was in your part the country last week, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens were beautiful. Have a great week, Laura
