I have had this series of flowers done for a few weeks now, and have been putting off photographing them for some reason. I think its because I am debating if they are truly finished or not. I also was debating if I wanted to enter them in the Challenge 66, "Inspired By Nature". I did two projects during that time frame, these, and my awesome (if I do say so myself!) Stormy Glass Mountain which I entered (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=390085.msg4618194#msg4618194) I hope I made the right choice there!

I really love these, and they brighten up out little hallway so nicely! I had to crank up the exposure on my camera because there is just not a lot of natural light in the area unfortunately. Less talking, more pictures!

If you are interested in more of the technique and "story" if you will, of this series, I did a mini write up of it: http://sparklysharpandfabulous.blogspot.com/2011/09/in-my-world-this-is-what-flowers-look.html , but in the mean time, I really wanted to share with you guys and hear what you had to say about them! I hope you like them Smiley

Those are gorgeous, and strangely compelling.  I all of them a lot, but especially the green patterned one.  Just stunning.

Oh my. I feel really inspired by those, now I want to use distribution graphs to do a similar thing!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thank you both so much! This is my first attempt at series work, but I just LOVE walking past them (they are also in my line of site when I wake up in the morning) so I am seriously pondering starting another small similar series! I'll make sure to post them when I do Smiley
