Flowers, Tags, Pins & Things

I’ve been really busy up in the workshop this weekend, a lot of the things I have made I cant show them at the moment, because I’m doing a mini album swap with Deb, I will do a blog post and video on it once its finished tho…

I made these flowers today, they are primas sprayed with cosmic shimmer mist and layered up to give a Prima Camelot copy

I made the tags below for the mini i’m making but decided not to put them into it, mainly because I put the flowers at the bottom and they wont fit into pockets because of the bulk at the bottom of the tag.

I also made another stick pin… this is being used on a little project I made this evening, which I will do a blog post on tomorrow πŸ™‚

Bits and Bobs….

I’ve not really been making any cards over the last few days, the weather here has been glorious, so we have been taking full advantage of the lovely sunny weather…

I did pop up to the workshop this morning and again this evening and just faffed around doing little bits n bobs.. so I thought I’d share my faffings with you

I watched a video on You Tube on making paper flowers, so I gave that a whirl

Then I took out a white prima flower and coloured each petal in a different colour of Copic Marker, I like how it turned out, might make a card with it this week…

Then I took a picture of some loopy wool that I got from Lisa in the My Paper Pantry Lightweight Swap, I love the colours and textures in this wool, so I will need to make something with it soon πŸ™‚

Poofy Flowers

ο»ΏThanks to a tutorial over on Dawn McVey’s Blog, Ive been making some of her “Poofy Flowers” they’re so easy to make and I love them, Here’s the link to her You Tube Video Tutorial

The first one is made with valentine paper that I’ve had for at least a couple of years and the edges brushed with chalk ink, a clear basic grey button added to the centre with a bit of Pearsall’s Marabou Silk.

This greed and red flower was made using a Daisy Bucket Paper dotty on one side and striped on the other, a large green button fixed with a glue dot and the same floss silk as the pink flower above.

With the next flower I used white polkadot vellum, and I mixed some violet perfect pearls with some water in a mini mister and spritzed it all over, then I squeezed some stickles onto my finger and brushed it around the edges, the centre is just a blue/purple button with a silver pearl on top.

This is a picture of the 4 that I made all together… then I got thinking and made a tiny 1.5cm one and adhered it to a tiny peg, I got the idea from last night’s post on felt flower embelishments

A tiny Poofy Flower Peg Embelishment πŸ™‚ I love it
