My Flower in My Flower Garden

Today I'm doing my first Mixed Media Monday!! What a treat doing a project "just for fun!"Mixed Media Monday is a blog that offers a weekly challenge to create an art piece based on a pre-selected theme. This week's theme is "Places." Fatma, the guest host who chose this theme, and the other participants are immensely talented in the area of mixed media art and their works are very inspiring! I am just enjoying being a tag-along!

My "Places:" Since I now live in a desert climate, I've been missing my bloom-filled backyard garden in Wisconsin. I took these pictures a few years ago of our overflowing peony bushes and my one-year-old-at-the-time enjoying them. Peonies are in my top five all-time favorite flowers!
I stitched and beaded Ava's photo. Then glued it and two torn verse pieces to the peony cut-out background. The chartreuse string for hanging was the finishing touch! Voila! Easy & cute for her room!

"Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,"
Song of Solomon 2:12 (NIV)
