Art in Progress: Board Book: Page 2 finished

You can see all the instructions to creating this spread over on Art Buzz. I made a brown wash with walnut ink, decided it was too faint. Sprayed on Adirondak ink and then sponged on some Distress ink to get the color I liked.
I cut the flowers out of scraps of background paper, and used 3 different brads for their centers. I found this flower quote that I thought went well with the bright & bold design and added an image of one of my favorite babies.

hello Carol,

I'm a bit behind with my board book if I see what you've done ! I must visit Trishes website to know which steps I missed...

Your page looks cute ! The bold page also turned out great !

greetings from Belgium
