Out came my tile photos & once again I wished I had a decent magnifying glass! If I had been working at the computer I could easily have enlarged images, but that was not possible in this case. The good thing about not having a perfect source to work from, is that I can fill in the gaps with my own creating...making a design that is more unique, than a perfect copy!!
This took rather longer than I had hoped....I've said that a few times havent I!!!!
Eventually, all the data was collected (drawings done & coloured in), so I began to create a design incorporating some of these carnation variations.
First though, I used my white pen to mark where I wanted my first cuts to be.
Here's what happened with further cutting back...
It was fun looking at carnations...next week tulips... maybe???
