Week Forty: Puddle-Wonderful

Only one day late, I'm catching up!

This week's post is inspired by the quote included, using words from a poem called 'Just In' by E.E. Cummings, and frequently paraphrased thusly: "The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful".



We have a little kid under a big umbrella, walking through the rain and enjoying the puddles.

 
 
This technique for water was a bit of a practice for me, for a big special piece involving water that I will be working on as soon as I've ordered a lot more of these shades of blue...
 
 
 
It's a good reminder to try and see things from a positive perspective as much as you can, and enjoy the little pleasures in life.
 
 

Okay, so that's cute, and it was good fun to make. This week's project will be up as soon as I can fit it in to my annoyingly full schedule.

Beautiful artwork inspired by a great quote! I like the way you made the umbrella stand out, the little puddle and the child silhouette!

Happy Quilling!

It is a fantastic quote isn't it Manuela - it makes me smile and it's clearly positive as it inspires me to quill!
