One Flower Wednesday....Unclear on the Concept??

"I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done." - Lucille Ball

So here I am............late again for One Flower Wednesday.....and I have to ask myself......"Am I unclear on the concept??"...........Nah!!....just getting to the place on my Oz hanging where I'm not sure what colors to put together for the hexagon flowers...........I know that I want to kind of blend in from the Sepia tones in the Kansas side to the rainbow colors of the Oz side and I am at that point of trying to decide................
so anyway I made several sepia colored petals and also some more Kansas character petals that I think I'm going to have to decide about once I get even more petals done.............here is what I did yesterday...


 I actually have the tornado on the sepia tone fabric but it is too small so I am going to "construct" one instead...I think the 3 near the middle of this photo are sort of heading towards that goal.........the 12 petals on the upper right side have gold flecks in them which will work in my transition from the Kansas side to the Oz side......and the Kansas characters will fit somewhere once I start laying out the whole hanging.........can you all see the witch flying on her broom in the petal above and to the right of the Dorothy and Toto petals??

I also worked a little on the rainbow transition from the Kansas side to the Oz side and just laid out a few petals and flowers to get an idea of how it might look:
 I have some more batik colors which I think will work to blend from the sepia to grey/green to blue.........so there is my "One Flower Wednesday" contribution for this week............did you all drop in on Karen's garden this week?  Click HERE to go there and see more beautiful flowers............. and as always......"TaTa for Now"........see you next time..............

Well, whatever you're doing, I know it will come out beautifully. Don't forget the green for the Emerald City, jaja. I love that last photo where you're playing with ideas, nice.

I LOVE where this is going. So, (inquiring minds) 1. Do you have a clue of what size it will end up being? 2.Did you see something and instantly get this idea or has it evolved in this?
