Sweet Pea Show

As you should all now know I love flowers and nature.  Power Poppy just released its monthly digital image and its is so sweet....Sweet Pea Show.  I had a grand idea to make the background very textured using markers an blending rags...well it didn't work as expected and I was not happy with it. Not to be swayed (or throw it away and start over) I continued to mess with it.  In the end I was quite pleased with the outcome.  Goes to show you...NEVER give up.  You are your own worst critic sometimes.

I need to also remember that not everything has to be over the top.  The best images speak for themselves.  Sweet Peas have always been a favorite of mine.  Dainty, delicate but that smell is over-the-top and if I close my eyes I am home with mommy and daddy in the wonderful garden that brought me so much joy in my childhood.
