Hi everyone, Jennie here from Live The Dream and I am thrilled to be hosting this new challenge. Many of you will know that I love making flowers, so I thought as spring should be in the air by now (hopefully!) we could all have a lot of fun with the theme:
I do hope you will have fun creating with us on our journey and we all look forward to seeing you fabulous spring flower creations x
Jennie's lovely challenge was just the spur I needed to stop stroking my new Wallflower papers and actually use them! I patchworked Fragments onto a wooden tag, with a Distress Paint background, like lots of botanical samples under microscope slides. Hop over to Words and Pictures if you want to know what's on the back!
When I saw Jennie's challenge I was filled with trepidation as Jennie is the Queen of handmade flowers! I used Tim's Tattered Floral die to make some pretty blue cornflowers, one of my favourite Spring flowers. If you would like to see how to make them please visit my blog Redanne.
Apart from an all consuming love for anything Tim I'm also completely hooked on Artist Trading Blocks (ATB's) and they make the perfect vehicle on which to display handmade flowers. Hop over to Pushing The Right Buttons to see this from other angles and find out how I created those Catkins…
What fabulous projects from our Creative Guides which I hope will inspire you to play along. We are all looking forward to seeing what you make and remember one lucky person chosen by the team will be our winner and will receive a £10 token from Countryview Crafts.
