Where in the World - Day 17 Singapore

I remember visiting the Orchid Gardens in Singapore, so that's what I came up with:

This was only my second attempt ever at a gradient, so please be kind.
I used a lot of colours to create this effect:

I purposely didn't blend the colours too much, because flowers are not perfect.

Look at my desk - I think this is why I mostly stay away from gradients:
The mess!!!!
And finally, here is Nikolai, yet again tucking himself under the sheets:
It's very warm and humid here, so I have no idea why he'd do this
Thanks for stopping by - next time we'll go to Ukraine!

  1. Gorgeous mani and absolutely beautiful inspiration ♥ Orchids are my favorites. My wedding bouquet was white Japhets and my bridesmaids carried white Cymbidium bouquets (also what DH and his groomsmen's boutonnieres were). LOVE the kitty picture, too :) Awesome post all around, girlie!
