From June 25, 2021

So I found this sheet of handmade paper with dry flowers and stems in it. I’ve had it in my stash for a long time and one of the dry flowers challenged me to make something with it. This paper is not coated or sized for watercolor, so I had to handle it in a different way. I still wanted to use watercolor, but I needed to draw with it rather than paint with it. I then used watercolor pencil to shade an blend. Can you find the original dry flower that called to me?
