Monday Challenge 7-15-13 "Lotus Pond"


Monday Challenge 7-15-13 "Lotus Pond"

For once, my water for a challenge is not the shore or beach! I took this photo at an Arboretum when my watercolor class was painting there.
Journaling reads:
If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
― Masaru Emoto (from the book: The Secret Life of Water)

For this layout I used:
TCS SS DLO Templates: Sketchbook 1
DEB Fascination Collection Biggie
BMU SS Paper Templates: Edgers Biggie
and my own photo



    hahaha!! You are funny! I love your blending work in this picture and how it disappears into the paper... a great choice of paper btw, and the colours are startling! Really really pretty and I love the artsy feel you gave it as it was part of an art class. Clever quote too!
    Oh, how pretty! I love the blending and the flower is just gorgeous. Great quote, too.
    Beautiful photo and I love your background. And I love your quote, wonderful words to live by.
    Pretty page, and cool quote.
    Beautiful flower! I love the blending and that added touch of the art strokes along the edge. Lovely quote, too. I admit to being surprised your didn't do a beach photo, but this is gorgeous! Beautifully done! :)
