Look for the flowers.

These are my Journal pages for the letter 'F' at the Craft Barn. As you will guess I am catching up slowly on the ones I have missed doing. One more to go 'V', then I will be up to date.
 No doubt in my mind what word to choose for this letter, 'Flower'.
As if I needed an excuse to use my new Jofy stamps from Paper Artsy, which recently found their way into my shopping basket, while visiting the new shop.
 If you are ever in Derbyshire or on line, The Artists Trading Post is full of exciting goodies for Crafters.
Back to my pages, The background is shaded  with distress inks and pans pastels.
On the left page I used a Studio 490 stencil, again distress inks to colour, mustard seed, forest moss and spiced marmalade.
The stamped images were coloured with water colour pencils.
The quote reads-
There are always flowers for those who want to see them.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
