take a word: umbrella

the photo with the umbrella seeds of a dandelion was the starting point for this layout. all elements (background, ticket, circles) are from jessica sprague, brushes (tapes, halftone pattern) are free downloads found in the internet.

  5. You certainly have brought back memories of our childhood of blowing the tiny seeds off thistle and dandelion flowers or making daisy chains with the flowers. This is beautiful, Johanna - a creative and unusual take on the challenge. I love it!

  10. Dandelion seeds are one of nature's most beautiful gifts, and you have used this one to perfection. I used to love to blow them when I was small but these days I'm not so keen when I see them looking for a place to plant themselves in my lawn. :D
