Postcard 07 Wales

Wales, what springs to mind?

Leeks
Rugby
Shhh sheep (i hate sheep)
dragons
Doctor Who
Druids
Daffodils?

Well i went for Daffodils, but i'm not sure i like it?

i need you help what should i do with it? and the page? it looks better in real life that it does on my ipod camera picture! I've also added a couple of pages to the top menu. I'll add each weeks postcard when it's completely finished and the complete list of countries. !

Aren't we our own worst critic? What I can see from here it's pretty and lovely!

Rozelle Faulkner said...

Maybe add a colourwash background? I think it's beautiful :)

Jamie Lynn said...

I must say I LOVE Daffodils (they were in my wedding flowers)...
but yes as Rozelle suggested perhaps a colorwash background to make the lovely flower Pop!

I love seeing daffodils - especially in the Spring! Yours is pretty :)

I did a daffodil too, and it is really tricky...they're just so YELLOW!! It is difficult to show the detail on a photo. The shape and style of the leaves is perfect, and the shape of the flower looks great too. You've done a fabulous job with a very difficult subject :D I agree with Razelle, and would probably keep the page simple with colourwashes :D XXX

Very pretty daffodils. What do you have against sheep? I used to have a flock and they were lovely and friendly with great family ties. Smelly yes but very clever!

here's another fan of your daffodil! and I agree, a simple colorwash would show it off well.

its a lovely daffodil, i would add something to the background...maybe a watercolour wash, in a pinky/orangey colour to compliment the green and yellow. If it was mine I think i would then mask off the flower, just with scrap paper and use a text stamp over the background, or perhaps a music stamp to represent the singing in wales..

its a lovely card! and agree a background may help the flower stand out - but a beautiful flower it is all the same x

Cynthia said...

lovely flower. everyone has great ideas. I also like to drawings of the flower as well. Maybe you could enhance those using a pen and ink or fine sharpie.

Jen said...

Lovely flower and lots of good suggestions if you want to do more.
