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!

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! :)

I love how you've blended the photo into the background - and that the background and photo coordinate so well! Beautiful layout!
