Playing with paint

Margaret Applin's DVD that I down loaded and wrote about yesterday was so inspiring that I couldn't wait to get out my paint and brushes. I'm currently having some screens done by her, so I thought why not add to them while I'm paying the postman.
These are a couple of ideas I worked on.
The one on the left was inspired by a sketch that I did a few years ago of a wrought iron fence.
The little medallion on the right was inspired by moroccon designs that I googled one day this past winter.

Then I got out my paint and brushes to try a few flowers.

I can't decide if I'll go with a grouping of three or an all over page design. I'd probably get more use out of the full page as I can isolate parts of it.

I also added a bit more paint to two of the tulip prints I did the other day.

I think it might go into a tulip wall hanging along with the third piece shown below. I'll get them stitched and then well see how it fits together.
