Fab Friday #17 - Flower Chains

I used Leonie's idea of acrylic paints for the background, which has worked quite well. Also, the distress inked edges add a nice effect.

Silicone glue is a bit tricky for such small items but so long as you don't look too closely it works ok.

I didn't use any free hand words or doodles on this one. Do you think it needs something else?

That background is gorgeous - I love the colours you've used. What a clever idea with the chain. I've just seen that my blog on your list - I feel very honoured - thank you so much. I spend Friday nights thinking about how to meet Leonie's challenge too!
Love Sharon

Thank you Sharon, it's so nice to receive a comment especially as I really am no artist. I absolutely love the thrill of Leonies' challenges because I learn something new each time. A reasonable attempt comes rarely so its nice when someone else thinks its good.
Luv Joanne xx

Remember - you don't have to be an artist to be creative! This is what I told my friend last week when she said she can't draw and needs to buy a book! I told her to experiment and enjoy! If you leave a comment for Leonie on her blog when you've done the challenge each week she will then know to visit your blog. She always leaves lovely comments. I enjoyed reading your blog to see what you have done for past challenges. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with next week!
Love Sharon x
