Botanica Explanation

Ok, now our theme NEXT week  (23 august) is going to be Botanica…….just in case you’re wondering…….WHAT??? LOL! Here is a brief explanation provided by Cathy…….

    “Bontanica covers things like flowers, fruit, shells, seahorses, starfish, butterflies, dragonflies, bees, insects, birds, eggs, nests, feathers, leaves, fish….
The design element is fairly simple, and the feature image is usually placed on old music, dictionary pages, text, postcards, ledgers, blueprints, architectural renderings/sketches, etc.
Next, the piece is typically finished with things like postage stamps, postage cancellation marks, numbers, symbols, text, etc, etc. ”

Hope that helps 🙂
