WOYWW #350

Good Wednesday morning and welcome to another WOYWW!  If you are curious about this just head over to Julia's blog and have a look around.  Each Wednesday Julia hosts this get together of like minded crafters and we link our blogs to her blog and then we can visit each other.  It is always wonderful to peep over your shoulder and see what is going on in your world.

As you can see I am making flowers, flowers and more flowers. I made several but decided I needed a few more for the current mini album I am making.  I'm using Heartfelt creations Raindrops on Roses designer paper and there are such lovely shades of mauve, green and purples in the paper.  I also have been working on some butterflies to match but I don't see any of them lying about in this photo.  The black case carries some of my shaping tools and there are some of those lying off to the right side of the photo. I spray a little bit of water on the back of the petals and use a stylus to shape by laying the petal on this mat and rubbing the stylus over the backside.  I love making my own flowers, leaves and butterflies to match the papers.  I think homemade embellishments are simply the best.

Well that's it for me this morning.  I'm off to visit as many of you as I can.
Hope your day is filled with joy and that you remember to 'Breathe'.

I agree. Homemade flowers are the best. I love making flowers and have several dies, but I don't make them often because I can't put them on a card as the envelope would be too thick, and neither on a scrapbook page for the same reason.
I love all the special tools you use. I'm afraid I just improvise and use anything that comes to hand.
Thanks for visiting,
Happy WOYWW and have a good week,

Am so looking forward to seeing the end product that you are making all of those flowers for. I know the flowers will be special so I guess the project will be too.

Hi Glenda,

Your flowers and leaves are beautiful. I really like how you've added some dimension to them, not only in their shape but also with the coloring.

Shoshi said...

Oh how absolutely gorgeous, Glenda! I adore making flowers. One day I hope to get my cutting machine up and running again so I can get back to flower making. I used to make loads, and I so agree with you that the hand-made ones are so much better. Thank you for your lovely comment, and I'm so glad you enjoyed the various things going on in Shoshi's life at the moment!

Happy WOYWW,
