Fresh Flowers

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Ahh, flowers! My favorite embellishment. These are extra special because they're all hand-made (well, except the little white crochet one) so they are customizable to your project. I like making my own flowers because they can be any size, any color, any style. See how they're created on my latest ustream class HERE.
I did make a few tweaks after the show. I usually do. So you'll notice a few small differences on the peach flower, since I added another hand-cut flower for backing, and replace the blue (it didn't match) center for a rolled cardstock rose.

This is absolutely fabulous! The embellishments are all so detailed and just perfect. Putting a crown on the bird's head looks wonderful - and to use a snowflake stamp to create the crown just blew me away. Your creativity will never cease to amaze me. :)

BTW, I did watch both of the ustream videos for this wall hanging. Unfortunately, I have not been able to watch you 'live' yet, but have enjoyed watching the recorded video later.
