May your day be filled with everything and everyone that you love!
This is a class that I taught for Joggles. I loved working with all of the different materials, and textures which include cotton fabric, lace, grosgrain ribbon, satin ribbon, felt, crochet streamers, and vintage buttons. The vessel that the flowers are displayed in is made from a cardboard cone that has been covered with mixed media techniques.
One of the flowers that I think is the prettiest is the shabby rose. If you would like to make this flower click here.
Many of you know that I love hearts! I love the shapes and all of the possibilities. Pictured here are two friends of mine that share my work space. Lizbeth is a doll that I created using a felt body and wire arms and legs, her clothing is attached almost like a paper doll. She was part of a blog challenge series called Dress-UP, check out the details of her dress for the month of February here. Rose Marie is a mixed media doll that I made from an old paint brush, cardboard packaging, plastic roses, paper mache lady bugs, vine trim, ribbonwork leaves, paper leaves, and crocheted roses that my mom made.
