I love flowers and think that one can never have enough of them. I had bought this book of Redoute reproductions when it was on super sale at a bookstore near my workplace a couple of years ago.
There are about 30 or so floral images inside the book and I had always planned on ripping out my favourites to either frame or just hang up on a wall. Especially in the winter time when fresh flowers are very expensive, I thought hanging up a grouping of these would be a wonderful idea. However, the pages inside the book were all a bright white and just didn't seem right to me.
Nothing a little distress ink couldn't fix, though.
So I gathered all my favourite images and away I went to give these new images the vintage look and feel that I though they should have.
Such a fast and easy improvement and now they just look right to me.
