I was recently chosen as guest artist for Unruly PaperArts blog to contribute a piece involving Buds and Blossoms which was their topic for the month of June. Incorporate nature in your art was the challenge. The piece that I entered was a altered canvas I made using a technique I came upon from artist Laura Liddell  where you using embossing powders to enhance the natural beauty of leaves and such. Below are some of the process pics I took as I was creating the piece but you can also view the entire post at Unruly Paperarts June 2012 issue Buds and Blossoms.  Take time to enjoy nature this month and try adding a little bit of art to it and see what you can make. Happy June !
