A very tough decision for me today.......had 3 images I could not decide between.... but after much pondering I have decided to give you my award for V1 due to the composition, complexity to create and most of all the colours.

Interesting to see how different they are from one batch to another.
I like V1 best today as the flowers can still be identified and I love those ice' bubbles'.

It's all still a learning curve for me, I have been freezing them in layers. I think the thickness of the ice also makes a difference. I will keep experimenting

Gorgeous Colleen, Love this idea, may even have a go myself.
For ice that's especially clear, use distilled water that has been boiled and then cooled.
This limits impurities and air bubbles, which make ice cloudy.

Colleen, A really nice set of images I think V1 would be stunning enlarged and framed. I would be more than happy to have this on one of my walls. SmileSmile

Don't know if I have the time or the patience for freezing flowers but I really enjoy looking at your images of them so keep them coming Colleen.

No Jenn, just use a pie dish which fits I to one of the three drawers in my freezer. Once I am done with one, I remove it from the plate and start a new one...Grin
A lovely set and well taken
