Today's is probably the most colorful, in shades of bright golden yellow accented with deep turquoise and coral-pink...
The paper edges are distressed and torn in places, and some shabby stitching added. Since there's no mixed-media layers on the backgrounds, I'm calling them "simply shabby."
Under the flowers, there's a small air-dry clay frame that I colored lightly with watercolors to get the sheer, "drippy" color I was looking for (vs. a more opaque coloring that I'd get with acrylic paint). Here are some close-ups around the cluster...
