Hi Katherine, I was giggling over that design when I got your great suggestions. I was thinking of naming it "Life Support" as I have tried a million things with it. I can't make the flowers any sharper but added a little texture and background to give all of it a smudgier look. Please take a look when you have a minute and if you have any more comments I'd value them. Thanks

Katherine, I just wanted to say I adore your block prints and overall style! I saw a striking yellow block print design on Pinterest and knew right away that it was your work ; ) Best of luck in the wedding challenge : )

Your 'painted triangles' is beautiful, but the uploaded jpeg is appearing really small. I don't want it to sway the voting... maybe you can save it larger?
