Inspired by our holidays

In August, we had a family week in Cornwall, and in September Mark and I had a long weekend on the Isles of Scilly. In both places, one of the characteristic sights is the bright blue balls of agapanthus flowers with the coast in the background. I have tried to re-create this feeling in a card.


The subtle mini-landscape was made by masking the area, lightly sketching with watercolour pencils then blending gently with a water brush. After drying, I added some grass and birds with markers, and stamped the agapanthus flowers.

I'm joining in with:
