Hello , Ive been busy making flowers this weekend. There are so many tutorials on youtube and such pretty flowers being made, I thought I would have a go. I have made some using Tim Holtz alterations tattered florals die, some using the running stitch sewing method and one using petals like CraftyLoops petaloops method which I love, but not as good as Lees. Im getting there slowly. I have just purchased a glue gun and I dont know how I managed without one. It was only cheap so I think I need to invest in a better one that has a fine nozle, but it does the job at the moment, with a few burnt fingers I might add. lol. I have also bought some of those cheap boxes to do up and I have an old mirror I want to repair. The mirror is ok but the outside is made of wicker and some of it has broken quite badly, so I thought I could add some of my flowers and trinkets to it. Ill see how it goes. Hope you like my flowers. I had a go at dying some of the lace turquoise using acrylic paint and water, but I think they have come out too dark. I may need to invest in some inks. Oh no, more goodies needed. Please take a look at the links that have inspired me.
Hi everyone. My name is Karen and I live in Poole Dorset. I have been making cards for about 7 years now. I am absolutely addicted. I just love buying bits and pieces especially beautiful papers. I find it hard to actually use them. I have 5 children age 25 down to 14 and 4 lovely grandchildren, so I am always making cards either for birthdays or their friends birthdays.
Take care Karen x
