    I love this!! It has so much of what I like to see: texture, layers, grunge, a bit vintage. If it had bling it would have everything I love about mixed media. Your flowers are beautiful and the layout and design are fantastic.

    Like all of your other creations, it’s simply beautiful. I do have a little more liking to this one because of the brown and blue colors you used. I also love the touch of burlap for texture. Your work is always stunning Vicky. ; )
