flowers and lots of them
The invitation came as a result of being the Design Team favourite for the challenge Warmth of Winter and I am very excited to be making a piece for one of my favourite and inspirational places, which I visit often for their wonderful tutorials.
And here it is:
For someone obsessed with making flowers, this is a wonderful theme for me. I decided to showcase my favourite shabby roses on this layered tag, using these gorgeous Maja Design papers.
The shabby roses (and the one in the centre with the stamens) are made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. Click the link HERE for the tutorial for the shabby roses.
The smaller flowers were made with the Donna Salazar Itty Bitty Flower Die - again another of my favourites.
And also fast becoming a favourite is the Spring Greenery die - perfect leaves for handmade flowers. I cut these from Maja Design paper and splattered them with a bit of watery Vintage Photo.
Finally, I mounted the layered tag on a piece of mountboard which I had covered with Picket Fence Distress Crackle and added wire to make a hanging.
(A little tip which you might already know! - it was the last in the bottle so I scraped it out with a spatula and decided to continue working with the spatular rather than the brush and it gives a far better even coverage.)
My thanks again to the Design Team of Frilly and Funkie for this fabulous opportunity and I hope you will visit and enjoy the wonderful inspiring tutorials and projects and of course join in the challenge yourself.
Have a lovely day x
