Apron art

I've started a new part time job at our local art and craft store, and was given a blank apron to decorate as I wished. The only requirement was to include my name on it somehow. A blank canvas! O.o

I decided I wanted it to reflect my love for nature, and this is the almost completed project:

I used Lumiere paints, watered down to give a more water color effect for the grasses and sky. These were not the flowers I intended, however a blop had to be corrected and this is what evolved. My name tag will be a bird... I decided not to paint it on the apron, at this point anyway.

Jumping in late with Paint Party Friday, hosted by Kristin and Eva. Do visit to see what the other fabulous artists have created.

Isn't it grand that mistakes can be transformed into something positive and lovely? One of the petals looks 3-dimensional...is it just me or is there a subtle significance to it? Congrats on the new job!

Aren't you clever? This apron looks totally fab and who wouldn't want to go to work wearing it? Visiting from AIB.
