If at first you don’t succeed….

31 Jul

You kind of have to wait for at least Dress Down Friday before you can try again, in my case. But water lilies really can’t wait that long, not when they are planted in my mind!
I have no idea why I am so fascinated by the water lily. Well… Fascinated and frightened, because once I got my clear nail wheel thingies out, I spent half my evening avoiding getting started on anything water-related. Instead, I made a very cute sky-and-clouds nail and a dodgy zebra-esk whatever it may be.
And then, somehow all of a sudden the leaf (what’s that type of leaf called in English? I only know it as a “plompeblad”, and I’m not sure if that’s even the name in Dutch!) appeared and I knew I had to push through. I wasn’t planning on doing black outlines, as it tends to look more like a paint-by-the-numbers, but in this case it seemed to work quite well.
Half way through the lily I wasn’t sure, but all in all, I think it looks a whole lot better than attempt #1, right?
Water lily: check!
What will be next? Suggestions?
