Try It on Tuesday is going Botanical

This fortnight we hope you will join us with anything botanical!
I looked up the definition of Botany…..
BOTANY
The science of plants
The plant life of a region

The biology of a plant or plant group

There's plenty of scope there for you to get started and the TIOT  Design Team also have some brilliant inspiration as usual.

I have been enjoying some journal play.
 As you can see all sort of different plants here but this page started as a mop up page!
 This was using the the ink up on some stencils I had been using
Added some spotty tissue paper, a mop up paper towel and some scraps of doily.
Next came texture sand paste coloured with dark blue paint and some green coloured crackle paste both through plant stencils, some tissue tape and more stencilling using ink!

I rubbed some gold paint over some parts using my finger.

Mixed up two quotes!
Finally the Paper Artsy Hotpicks bluebell was stamped onto green card and cut out!

I hope you will join us at Try It On Tuesday with your botanical entries.

Thanks for looking, Chris

I love how you took us through this. It was like a mini-tutorial, too. I really loved the texture, but the cool colors were gorgeous, too.

What a gorgeous collage. I really like the texture and details. And thanks a bunch for the name of the daffodils in my post today. I didn't know that-but how appropriate! Thanks for stopping by to visit. Hugs-Erika

Wow! This is what I actually hopped over to see - having managed to play along at TIOT for the first time in an age. What a stunning botanical page, Chris - the layers and colours really capture the atmosphere of a country garden allowed to run wild - I love it.
