Day 5 May Flower Challenge

Welcome to day 5 of the May Flower Challenge.

I'm fascinated with flowers. They are all over my tiny apartment. I photograph them all the time. I draw, paint, doodle them, create them out of paper... I also see them all over the NYC. Each day I will post flowers and I hope that you will join in. The only rules are that your blog post or flickr photo that you link must contain flowers. Click above on the May Flower Challenge Page to learn more.

On Thursday I shared the flowers that I am making out of paint cards/chips, if you missed it scroll down or click here to visit that post. So, to add leaves and the place where the message will be written I decided to create the leaves out of watercolor paper.

I then cut leaf shapes out of the paper.

Cut a piece of wire for the stem.

Wrote a short message on the front and my blog address on the back.

Saturday will be spent making 25 - 30 more.

The plan is to place 5 of them in public places on Sunday and the rest will be on my desk at the day job. My co-workers can then stop and take a message during the day. Also, during my lunch break I may take and place a few in hopes that someone will benefit from the smile.

On Monday I will post a few pictures of where I placed them and share the bouquet.

Participate by linking your blog post to my blog post. Each day during May, starting on May 1st, on my blog post I will have a linkytool available so that you can link your specific blog post (not just your blog but the post itself) to my blog post. And, please remember to link back.

Participate by linking to the flickr group - May Flower Challenge- and adding a photo of your flower creation. Make sure you add your photo to the linky below each day that you post.
