Showers Bring Flowers

This set (and the butterfly) are my favorite Tim Holtz images. It started off mostly gray and monochromatic and then I thought of all of the prettier things some rain brings and added some color with the flowers. 
Started with a vintage sheet music page and painted with gesso. Stamped umbrella and then added some brushos and Payne's Gray watercolor for rainy skies. Silver embossed clock from the same set and shaded with SU chalks. Stamped sentiment and SU Simply Soft flowers that were colored with Prismacolor pencils. Inked edges first with Old Paper and then Weathered Wood, both by Tim Holtz. Did a lot of little dots on image, I was so captivated by some of the pointillist paintings that I saw recently.
