    Beautiful Iris, Purple and Yellow is my favorite color also🥰❤ My Grandmother had the same color Iris planted all over her land, you could see Iris’s for miles just like you have painted. Thank You so very much for bringing back a wonderful Loving Memory of mine as a little girl, and I’m 61 now, so Thank You Vicki. I really Love the color palette that you have chosen, it really makes your page pop with Piazzas. I never knew that they had that grid cancel I will have to get it when I order the irises stamp I can picture now how I will make my card what’s a beautiful Iris as you have painted it. Thank you so very much for sharing Vicky. Oh by the way I love your name😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😁❤❣

    Your journal page is gorgeous. Every time you post journal art I’m inspired to start one (I even bought a journal). Maybe this would be a good time to start. That iris is beautiful.

  17. Wow, I love how you colored it and the dimensional elements in your journal page. Still trying to decide if I like embossing past — I do like how you used it!

    I loved watching your video. So many fun elements, from the partial stenciling, the stamping with ink and clear embossing powder, to the beautiful watercoloring. And the sentiments were so varied and fun!
