Sixteen more flowers, which brings me to about mid-February, or flower number 184 – just beyond the half point for the entire year. I have been keeping up with them since then – just did 225 (assuming I didn’t count wrong) today.
Recently uploaded and for sale at Society6. Shown on the shower curtain and available on a variety of home decor items.

Perhaps I’ll go more into the process in future posts; for now, here are two of the completed designs – maybe you can guess which flowers have beenContinue reading “A Flower A Day Challenge: 120 Day Milestone”
Presenting “Hearts and Paisleys and Dots – Oh My!“, my latest contest entry. This limited palette design features the Pantone 2021 colors of the year: Illuminating (Yellow) and Ultimate Gray along with black and white.
