I'm sure I've told you before that one of my favorite flowers are zinnias. Their colors are so vibrant and bold and come in so many different colors. I forgot to plant zinnias in my garden this year and have been seeing them blooming all over town. I started this collage back in March or April and was distracted by something else and hadn't felt like finishing it. I guess seeing all the zinnias around motivated me to finish it. For some crazy reason, I had decided to cut each petal out of painted tea bags. I really wanted the look and feel that the tea bags give. I was going to put a butterfly in this collage, but the zinnias really took center stage and started to have an almost pattern like feel to it and having a single butterfly just didn't seem to work.
So here is my zinnia garden!
