Klimt in the garden with Rumi : July

I'm happy to say that I'm now up to date with my art cards inspired by Effy's A Year of Rumi online class. July's quote is "Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames." Inspired by Effy's page of a fan, I decided to try one on my card. These art cards are very challenging to me since they are only 5 3/4" square. Always gatherings to start - this time it's fabrics with similar patterning....
Loving the fan print on the left (which I think will be my backing) and that inspired the use of a new fan stencil. Effy's sample was a red fan, so I was inspired by that colour here - adding a bit of warmth to my Winter. 
Not much "in the garden" here until I realised I had a flower shape on the back after I added my satin stitched edge
and the perfect garden addition for the front = a sweet butterfly brad
My art cards are completely different from Effy's lessons and thinking I might go back and repeat some of the prompts in my art journal using her ideas...keep you posted ♥
