Watercolor painting on cardmaking | Hearted words episode 1

Hi everyone!
I hope you're enjoying spring so far and having a good month.

It's a been a little busy on my end but I miss focusing on sharing/posting some inspiration work here, so here I have something for you to enjoy ..
I have both card making and journaling for today, so hopefully you will read until the very end because I would love to hear your thoughts on everything.

I have a story behind this scene ( only in my imagination, of course )

Once upon a time, there was a strawberry kingdom ..
The royal king has a daughter, Princess Strawberry :)
She loves to play in the strawberry garden owned by the kingdom, where the strawberries grow very big and fertile .. she is a kind daughter, and she has a wonderful dream .. if someday she will meet a kind, smart prince that love farming so that the royal people will still enjoy the sweetness of strawberry fruit without being disturbed by the enemy ... very peaceful ..

I use an image from Magnolia - Tilda with strawberry costume (I don't know her name yet, but the collection will release soon and the title is Fruit Salad Collection)
along with the image, I also use some dies (cloud and grass) from various volume of DooHickey Box.
and the big 3D Strawberry also cut from DooHickey dies that I believe you will love it as much as I do! I can put some perfume gel inside and I choose a strawberry scent.
I use watercolor to paint the big strawberry as well as all the scene

I do LOVE the peaceful scene of that strawberry garden, but it is hard to find the idea at the beginning, really ..
I found a quote that boost me, a quote that wholeheartedly by William Golding, he says:
" The greatest ideas are the simplest "
it does take courage to think simply and to not overthink and when we are able to muster up that courage, I believe that we can accomplish great things.
I am so grateful to find this word!

I am adding some Instax photos on my notes and they make a big different for my mood,
I think I find the mood of the month of May : 

I hope you'll find a little something from here to inspire you.
Have a beautiful day!
