Letter Z

 Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a good week. The Y tags were brilliant! We are definitely being more imaginative with the more difficult letters! It was nice to have your comments,so thank you.
For my Z tag I have done
Z is for Zinnia

Zinnias are such a pretty flower, and luckily they begin with Z ! This is not an exact representation of what they look like, but they are colourful and have lots of layers of petals.
I used my new Gelli plate- which I am using all the time now! You can read about it and see my experiments with it on my blog here. I used flower cut outs from a punch as resist and then added the cut out flowers (made from  an old gardening catalogue-see I knew it would come in handy!)


The alphabet challenge has been great fun to do, and I can't believe we are at the end of it! I have enjoyed working with you all. I am  really looking forward to Carolyn Howarth's new challenges. Off to look at your Z tags now!

  5. Zinnias are very pretty and you have shown them beautifully. Gelli plates are very popluar I've noticed, but not something I have room for so I try not to dream, haha :0)

  7. Love the flowers made from the catalogue - such a great idea. I'm a big gelli plate fan too but still at beginner level!

  9. Very nice tag! Love the dimension of the flowers. I have no idea what a gelli plate is, but I think I must investigate!
