I was so happy to hear that the Tuesday Trigger from last week had been extended. I was pretty booked up finishing commissioned party decorations I just couldn’t squeeze it in. This past week seemed to fly by as well, although I was pretty wrapped up creating this collage.
I sooo want this coat!! I love yellow and this is so unique and fun! As soon as I saw this it just beckoned me to make a paper flower arrangement. Those black buttons are reminiscent of the charcoal colored centers of a Black Eyed Susan…and the soft, subtle ruffles…look like unfurling rose petals. On my last trip to Michael’s I saw the “Lemon Flower Stack” by DCWV and picked it up specifically for this challenge. Lemon Flower? Come on! All signs were pointing in a floral direction. Finally Sunday a supposed day of rest and the last day to enter the challenge yet I had all the flowers cut and inked but nowhere near finishing an arrangement. What’s a girl to do? Try something new of course! A friend of mine has urged me to make Hair accessories out of my flowers (apparently they are all the rage these days), I decided to give it a whirl.
All I need now is that coat and I’m ready for a night on the town!! Definitely glad I gave making hair accessories a shot. I also tried something else I haven’t done before….
I added leaves! Been meaning to do it for ages I just always run out of time. It’s a lot easier when working with quantities of one paper flower as opposed to 3 dozen or so….man that would be a lot of leaves….might need a rake!
Thanks for stopping by today I appreciate your visits
