She seemed the lady of leisure...
This month for Crusade # 49 we had to document everything about ourselves and our interests. http://michelleward.typepad.com/how_cool_is_that/
I decided to focus on my gardening obsession. Every spring the gardening bug hits me, and though every year I swear to myself to stop digging and start enjoying things that are already growing, the story goes on and on. All of my life, I love the experience of turning dirt with a shovel, planting the seeds and watching the miracle of life. This activity continues to take a significant portion of my free time even here in Texas. Spring in Texas brings marvelous results. Unfortunately, the summer heat and ravenous invertebrates dampen the joy but still, each Spring I look forward to the smell of freshly turned dirt. Hence: “She seemed the lady of leisure, but her hands shrieked- GARDENING”
For this journal spread I photoshoped my photograph into the portrait of Marie-Antoinette. And how could I not use a tutorial provided by Michelle to make these poppies, while waiting for the real ones to bloom.
