Can anyone start a challenge??

If so, I have one... Just been watching Gardener's world live and they reckon Fuschia's are back in.

Challenge is to create something that is inspiried by the Fuschia :)

There are no winners and no prizes.
Challenge closes in one month.

Have fun

Stacey

Lovely shapes to fuschias.

(anyone else besides me admit to still popping the buds?)

My Lilith pink necklace should really be Lilith fuchsia as that is the name of the bead colour so in a way it inspired me.
Also if we can go back in time, say 20 years, I can show you my fashion collection of drawings inspired by flowers including the fuchsia.

Please post pictures of your flowers, I'd love to see them :)

I think I was so surprised at the variety of Fuschia's there are now - not just the more conventional ones.

I make twisted pyramage and decoupage and any kind of 3d papercraft under a different name (3D Crafts). I made up a Fuschia Twisted Pyramage using a Fuschia Show winner last year. You can view the item here (http://shop.grinandcraftit.co.uk/product_info.php/cPath/48/products_id/373). :)

Nice picture grinandcraftit - did you use S/w to rotate and size the pics? or did you do it all by hand? :o

I used software to rotate and resize the image. Spent many months working out the correct angles and dimensions. Does look really nice when it's made up.:)
