Floral Reflections…

Hi Everyone…. and a very happy friday to you all.

Here is this week’s Design Team project for Wild Orchid Crafts, there are a ton of flowers on this project this week!

This project is an altered Ikea square wooden mirror, I tossed a coin to see what colour it was going to be because I couldn’t choose between green or pink… head’s won and green it was 🙂

here is the before picture

 

I gave it a coat of White gesso and then a coat of Early Spring Green edged with antique white acrylic paints

 

and here is the mirror… before the flowers invaded 🙂

 

 

I also used some muslin fabric and various vintage crochet doilies cut into bits from my own supplies…

“Mini” Bags

Hi everyone…. it’s been a while, but I am still here,  still alive and kicking after a week of being poorly 🙂

A couple of weeks ago I moved a tall bookcase into the shed to give me more storage space, as I was rapidly running out of it!… so whilst I was moving stuff around, I came across a drawer full of the $1 chipboard mini albums from Micheals in all different shapes and sizes.

After 2 weeks of pondering what I could make with them I came up with the idea of turning them into gift bags…
