Third time lucky?!

The latest challenge over at the Make Art Challenge blog the theme is Flowers this month. I used my medium Moleskin Journal and created this page.
I love Wendy's jug stamp as a flower vase and this page was born! I used many other favourite stamps and stencils so it was a really enjoyable page to make!
I used the zig zag stamp from a sewing stamp set to ground my jug so it wasn't 'floating' in mid air!
I love these rules to live by - I do try and live up to them! Now, this wasn't my first attempt at this challenge... I had two aborted attempts first... I thought I'd be honest and share them. I'd be interested in your opinions!
Thought this one was a bit too pink...!
And this one was a bit too bland! Glad I finally got one right! Thank you, as always, for popping by - it is much appreciated.

Thought I was visiting Goldilocks for a minute, one too pink (think I agree with that, though I like the flower!) one too bland ( really?) but one definitely just right!!

I'm with Helen on this, just not a pink girl but I love your turquoise and yellow pages and the final page you show is just lovely too!

I really like the 1st one you aborted. I love the colors of the flower. The next one in pink I just adore. The colors are sweet. The final one is really neat. You are an awesome artist. I only wish I was just a tiny bit good at this mixed media stuff. I have it all, just don't understand how to use it. TY for sharing.

Love your final pages, the flower in the jug is so pretty. The flower on the pink one looks fab and I don't think it's too pink - but I do like pink lol! X
