Default MIX223 Showers and/or Flowers

Challenge Title: Showers and/or FlowersHostess: MariLynn
Keyword: MIX223
View the gallery: HERE

APRIL showers bring MAY flowers at least that is how the saying goes. I will have to see about the flowers, but we definitely had the rain especially the last week of April. In fact it spilled over into May. Today was the first day that I have seen sunshine in awhile. So my mixability challenge is to use something to represent showers and/or flowers on a mixed media project.

One of the ways you can do showers is to make raindrops. Check out this old mixability challenge on making raindrops. MIX105
You can add flowers by stamping, drawing, 3-d flowers, floral dp...etc
Make sure you have several different types of art medium to make it mixed.

Use the keyword MIX223 when uploading so it goes to the correct gallery.

Thanks for the challenge, MariLynn. I went with the flowers that are blooming in my area right now...that is if the constant rain and flooding haven't beaten them down.

Lisa (Shoe Girl) thank you so much for coloring this image for me! It is such a fun one!

MariLynn, great challenge today! I couldn't help using this image for my Spring showers and flowers.

Here is mine for today's challenge, very appropriate because of all the rain and all the flowers (and dandelions) that are blooming as a result! Ps. The photo does not do the alcohol ink colors justice.
