Another rose, another notebook

I'm back with another notebook, this time with a rose design.

I used Sheena's stamp sets for the two larger and also for the rosebuds and then did the smaller blossom free hand, I think it looks ok.
I would also like to share a couple of wooden plaques that I painted ready for my next craft fair.


As these plaques are only about 3 inches x 6 inches, I had to scale down my painting alot, which I find difficult, the bigger the better for me. I tried to use the same techniques as with the bigger designs, but used a smaller brush. I'm pleased with the rose one, but not with the poppy, there's something not quite right. If there's anyone with knowledge about how to paint small, please leave me some hints and tips.
Thanks for looking!
Challenges I'm entering:
I'm going to have to go and take the dog for a walk, she jumping about in front of me. I'm sure if she could speak she'd be saying 'Come on mum its walkies time'. lol
