Being creative with my pomegranates!

It begins in early spring
with the most beautiful blossoms all over the tree!
During the summer, the fruit slowly begins to grow
and the blossoms fade away
 The fruits become a beautiful red
and keep growing and growing
When they are finally ready in the fall to eat
There are the most beautiful seeds inside. 
They are full of antioxidants and delicious
in so many things!
Lots of yumminess for me to snack on!
My favorite is mixed in with vanilla greek yogurt!
The juice stains everything and can make quite a mess.
Then it hit me . . . wouldn't it make a nice watercolor?
So I tried it . . . .
I loved the beautiful color it produced on 
the watercolor paper.  
So I decided to create a mixed media little piece!
The mountain sky is pomegranate pink.
I then started adding my collage papers and stuff
I had seen this demo in the recent
Cloth Paper and Scissors issue this month
and of course, made it my own!
Here is my finished piece!

And to think it all began this spring,
with my little pomegranate tree!
I love to look at everything as a creative experience,
a time to explore something new
and see what I can come up with!
I would love for you to share with me
what you have been working on lately!

Have a blessed and most creative week!
