My bit of inspiration for the day

I'm trying to find easy templates and inspiration for my Valentines this year. I don't want to go crazy like I do every year because then I wind up not getting anything finished. So maybe I'll make a few templates, choose the best of the samples and make a bunch of those. We'll see.

Sometimes, when I get side tracked by different mediums (for almost two years it was mostly makeup on face) I really forget or at least repress my love for paper. It's so easy! I imagine something...and then it happens. Well, it happens after some time and fiddling with tools and paper...but it happens. Sometimes better than I imagined. This would be one of those times. These flowers...I love them. I want to plant them and see if they'll grow and bloom many more like them. Is that too much? Am I over exaggerating? I don't think so. I'm going to experiment with curling the edges of the petals to see what happens. Flat is pretty but dimension would be lovely.
