You already know I collect phrases if you have read many of my blog posts! I found this saying and immediately thought: crocus! I remember many spring days (that still felt like winter), when the pretty crocus flowers bravely bloomed even with some leftover snow in the flower bed.
I hear this is the perfect time to plant some crocus bulbs if you want to have them blooming in the spring. It takes planning ahead to have a pretty flower bed!
TO PLANT A GARDEN IS TO BELIEVE IN TOMORROW
I love the romance of this saying and I admit I never would have thought up the phrase on my own. I don’t think in philosophical terms!
It was fun to make this 10 x 10 wrapped canvas mixed media. I am totally addicted to making gel transfers, so I printed out an inkjet photo of some crocus and transfered it to the canvas. (If you want further information type in “gel transfer” in my search box, I have several step by step tutorials.)
I applied some pretty lavender acrylic paint and Ranger Stickles swirls and got out my magazine fonts to spell out the phrase.
