My purple roses are made with a green center and purple edges.  The petals are shaped by spraying with water and then wrapping each petal around the end of a skewer stick and I pinch the edges together to give it a  scrunched look.  Set aside and allow to dry: glue petals together and then add green prills to the center.  I dyed the seam binding to match the rose centers by using Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  You swipe the ink across your mat, spray with water and drag the seam binding through the color.  Scrunch the binding and allow to dry.

 My flowers are made using the Tulip stamp, dies and shaping mold from Heartfelt Creations.  I love this shape as I think it looks like something that should be blooming in the desert!

WOYWW #559.....

Good Wednesday morning everyone!  I'm here sharing my desktop this morning as I do most Wednesdays these days so you can have a little look into my world.  If you are curious about this just head over to Julia's blog and have a look around.  She has information there along the top of her blog for how to link.

My desk this morning is sort of quiet with only the beginnings of a mini album.  I decided it would be a good way to use up some extra papers that have been handing around here for ages. 

These are the base pieces that will make up the actual I just need to put it together and begin.  Each journey has to start somewhere and I'm hoping this will be a journey ending with a beautiful piece to be given as a gift or just kept for myself. 

The yellow can of pledge in the background needs to be used here in my craftroom but as always, I can find something better to do.  LOL...

Well folks that does it for me this morning.   I'm off to link up and visit as many of you as I can.  Can you believe we are expecting a wintery mix tomorrow but there has been so much warm weather so far that I need to mow.  That is unheard of in these parts so that just shows how warm our winter has been and how sporadic.  One day we will be in the 60's and the next back down in the 30's with snow.  Crazy!!

WOYWW #558....

Good morning my fellow deskers and welcome to my Wednesday post!  I have been absent for a week or so and decided to jump back in today!  If you have a curosity about this just head over to Julia's Blog and have a look around.  Julia is our fearless leader and she allows us to use her blog as home to this Wednesday get together and blog hop!

Not a lot going on here that I can actually show as I am working on a project for publishing later this month.  But I can show you this much for sure.  I've colored some white seam binding with Distress Inks and water to match my project.  You just smear some ink onto the glass mat, spritz with water and drag your seam binding through it.  I always wet my seambinding first and that allowes the color to be more even.  Then I scrunch the seam binding and allow to dry.  And of course some Heartfelt Creations sentiments!  And I almost forgot the little rose petals from Heartfelt Creations.   I use Heartfelt on every project I make.  It's a rule I think! In the background you can see some of the ink pads I'm using on this project.  I color everything with inks...paper, ribbon, flowers.

Well that does it for me this morning!  I'm off to visit along the blog hop!  Have a happy Wednesday and be creative!

Monday Morning Happy Card....

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend filled with chores, fun and loved ones.  Now it is the dreaded Monday and most of you have to go back to work and start a new work week.  So I thought I would share with you a little card I have made that is bringing me great joy!  I just love how it turned out and all the flowers on the front just made me smile.

All the products used to make this card from the flowers to the dies to the paper are Heartfelt Creations.  I do have other products in my craft room but I always seem to reach for Heartfelt Creations products; they just seem to fit my style!

Well that does it for me this morning.  I hope your Monday is a good one and that you find time this week to be creative!
