DT Inspiration post for IQCG # 32

Hello Quillers!

The theme for this month's challenge at IQCG is dedicated to the flora community of our mother nature. Now, don't be alarmed! It simply means that November's theme for IQCG challenge # 32 is PLANTS!!!

When I was faced with challenge of which part of a plant to choose, I couldn't think of anything except flowers. Who doesn't like them? Who doesn't appreciate them? The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feeling of life satisfaction and affects our emotions positively. Let it be any occasion, as simple as a romantic dinner for two or a huge gala celebration, we find flowers as most basic means of decorations in various walks of life. In fact, of all the parts of a plant, only flowers are the one which have their own language. Yes, that's true! Don't believe me? Google it yourself!

There is a language, little known,
Lovers claim it as their own.
Its symbols smile upon the land,
Wrought by nature's wondrous hand;
And in their silent beauty speaks,
Of life and joy, to those who seek
For Love Divine and sunny hours
In the language of the flowers.

-- The Language of Flowers, London, 1875

Since of all flowers, roses have most enticing and mystic beauty so for this month's theme's inspiration post I decided to make quilled roses of pink and white. Now here is the thing, I made the quilled roses and I was thinking about how to arrange them into a layout where I chanced upon what does the Language of Flowers say about pink and white roses. Pink combines the innocence of white and the passion of red with flair of femininity. White is associated almost exclusively with purity and new beginnings. So I thought why not make the layout for my quilled roses which will encompass elements of passion/romance, innocence, purity and new beginnings.

Recently I tried my hand at something new again - a Dream-catcher. All thanks to my friend who liked the concept so much that I made my first dream-catcher for him. In fact, he is the real motivating force for me to do this and so many other new things. Take a look at it.


So I thought a pink and white dream-catcher will catch the innocence, purity and romance of good dreams and the beauty of the concept behind a dream-catcher. The element of new beginning was symbolized by using a new layout, a Dreamcatcher, for my quilled pink and white roses. So here is my layout for the DT post for IQCG challenge # 32

And finally here it is hanging over my bed for good, beautiful dreams.
