Botanical Name - Dahlia
What is there not to love about Dahlias?
The variety of Dahlias are amazing!
42 Different Species!
Size - from 2 inches to 1 foot - a dinner plate!
Colors range from soft to bold colors!
Multi- color blends!
Before I show you the Dahlia Card that I crafted
I want to share a coloring tip:
I had mentioned the Copic Color Hex Chart -
The chart had me stretch out of my comfort zone
and choose new colors combinations!
|Be sure to look at the supply list for Copic Colors!|
Two of my favorite colors for Dahlias are
Yellow - the color of Sunshine!
Coral - gives me Happiness!
Re-purposed the Printed Paper!
The printed paper was on my blog in June 2012 -
Summer! Spark your Creative Spirit!
Don't the small cup Dahlias remind you of Ric-Rac?
The photos were taken at the
Swan Island Dahlia Garden!
Located in Canby Oregon!
In the Willamette Valley of Oregon
Dahlias can bloom from June to October!
I can only hope my Dahlia Cutting Garden
looks as beautiful as Swan Island Gardens!
