Something about tropical flowers and plants that can change a space. Well, to my surprise, I received a beautiful bouquet of "Ginger Lilies" or Hedychium yesterday and as I was preparing to leave my studio for the day, I was drawn back in by these these tropical lovelies. Long, luscious, and full of vibrancy, I took a few photos with my Canon G11 and iPhone apps, "Hipstamatic" (check it out if you want to vintage looks) and also the Tilt Shift Generator app for some atmospheric effects.
I then I created some Ginger Lily imagery in my Art Journal:
I also created some postage stamp style cards with some tropical themes. I've talked about my passion for old postage stamps, so this was soo much fun! I may send these out to my lovely girl friends. I used a Tim Holtz postage die, Artist Trading Cards (ATC), stencils, water color pencils, Brilliance Archival Ink Pads, and lots of inspiration.
I can always count on my sweet Caribbean to flood my mind with memories, ideas, and passion to CREATE!
