Weekly Challenge #110: "Get rid of the box"

This week the Diva has encouraged us to be creative and think outside of the box.

Well, well, well, did I have some fun!

I was going to roast some Beetroot for dinner, so I kept some and cut a heart shape with a cookie cutter.  I also used the peelings to colour some paper.  I haven't done anything with that yet - been too busy with this challenge :)

Okay, so once my creative juices got going, there was no stopping. 

I decided to have the heart as the main feature of this floral Zentangle Inspired Art.  I then cut some leaves and succulents and laid them out artfully on a sushi mat which would provide texture for when I edited.

Now, it was always my intention to work on this digitally once it was assembled and snap shot taken.  In my mind I was going to use the ebossing feature, print it on paper and then I was going to tangle with pens. 

I also chose my plants to be both red and green in colour, so if I chose to invert the pic you would still see a difference.

.....However, I was having too much fun - edited in many ways.
