One of the fun things about May is it’s time for Lori Moon’s annual May Flower Challenge – a celebration of all things flower-related. I happened to stumble upon it last year in the final days of May so I didn’t get to play much. But I expect this year will be different. And as Lori says “I believe that flowers are nature’s way of smiling.” Let’s celebrate those smiles!
While I’m happy to report the tulips and wild violets are in joyful bloom, not much else is blossoming in my yard yet. So today’s journal page is a mixed media creation. As an added theme bonus, one of the layers of paper is handmade and incorporates bits of plants.
I was noticing today that I have a lot of flower-y things in my home. I might make taking photos of them part of my May practice. This month Magpie Girl’s Flock is exploring Whimsy and I’m thinking whimsy and flowers have a lot in common. Here’s to all of us having a whimsical flower-filled month!
For today’s pressing flower question (not to be confused with flower pressing, the art of preserving flowers) – what are your favorite blossoms? Have a flower story to share? Do share – you know I love to hear.
