My little dreams .......



Hi Everyone on this very wet and windy Sunday.  As it was also a very wet and windy Saturday I had a lovely day crafting!  I have wanted to make a 3d project for a long time, but never seem to be inspired to start, so when I saw yesterday's Technique Video on Swirlydoos there was no looking back!!


As you can guess this was made using the Tim Holtz Dress Form Die and the folding of the papers was quite laborious, but very effective.  I have been saving these reels from my East of India Ribbons and all I needed to add was just a small amount of paper and a few bits and bobs from my stash.  It was so much fun building it up.  I made the flowers on the base but I was too impatient to make more (!) so I added some small bought rosebuds and leaves.



I am so thrilled with it! - I was still glueing at midnight last night, but wasn't going to bed until it was finished!

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day! x
