A Walk in The Sun

Nothing is more relaxing than meandering down a garden path, enjoying the sight and smells of the garden. The abundant blooms are a wonder to look at and always make me smile.

"Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in the garden to know it."-Rumi

This is my first project in the Pattern to Portfolio challenge. I started my project by thinking of things that make me smile.  The beauty of a garden came to mind.  Unfortunately I have a black thumb and most of my flowers......DO NOT make me smile.  I am so glad other people have mastered the art of growing.

Here are some thoughts that inspired me:

Fauna, Flora, Calm, Peaceful, Fairytale Like, Abundant, Leafy, Cottage Garden

My inspiration photo's:

Ahhhhh! So pretty!

Now it is time to sketch...Here is what I came up with.  I just really used my sketch as a guideline and gave myself liberty to change things up a bit. I love this part of the process because I am definitely a doodler and I love watercolor.

I decided to loosely base my colors on this colorway.  I still changed things up a bit because I can never make a decision :)

And TADA! My final project.  I really loved this class and I spent entirely way too much time playing with the recolor art work tool.  I can't wait to start the next project!
