Awakening Spring ....

Hi, just popped in to show you a piece I worked on using Paper Transfer Technique


Its my first attempt at Paper Transfer so its not brilliant, but kind of like it.  Other products used:  Modelling Paste used on a Stamp, Acrylic Paints and Crackle Glaze.  After it was complete I digitalised it - not sure if thats a proper word or not...........into a notebook and added the small sunflowers.

Awakening Spring, how many leaves!
Rustling dawn: how many branches!
Does she know the pangs of love?
Never a time she wouldn't dance.
(Li Shang-Yin)

Thank you for popping in and hope you had a good day.  See you soon, hugs Annette xx

Just realised I was entering this piece into the Unruly Paper Arts challenge of Faux Flowers and forgot to send it in.......how dumb can you get.........lol
