A thank you to Julie T-W

Some time ago sweet Julie (you know who you are) sent me a special package filled with things that she knows I would love - and of course I did!!!  She sent me some of the coolest papers - textured whites and creams with leaves embedded in them - so beautiful!  I have been playing with the papers for a while now and I painted these flowers onto one of them.  AND then because Julie is one of the most talented scrappers that I know, I created a layout using my painting:

I made the flower by cutting lots of canvas circles, wetting them, and wrinkling them so they dried all crumpled. I then sewed them together in the center and hand painted with watercolor paints so the flower matched the ones on the paper.

Thank you sweet Julie, the Scrap Angel!
