Oh look, it's me again!

Hope the shock of me blogging twice in as many days isn't going to be too much for you! Especially with four pictures to share, too.
The first two show a layout I made at a PaperArts workshop, led by the talented Sandie Vincent. One of my favourite moments of the day was learning how to make 3D flowers (rather like the Prima ones) using a six-petal flower punch. We used, I think, a big blue Woodware beastie, kindly loaned to us by Sandie.
The second pair of photos show my 'test' flower which I made at the workshop (the smaller, blue one) before I decided that for my LO, I wanted a more subtle effect to go with my meerkats. The larger orange flower is my first creation using the Tim Holz Sizzix Tattered Floral die.
I used some scrap orange card for the petals, inked the edges with an orange Brilliance Ink pad, and then for the final touch, once assembled, dotted gorgeous orange Stickles glue on the petal edges. You can't see it in my photo, but I also dotted some of the Stickles in the flower centre, too. I really liked the result and am looking forward to playing with this versatile die some more.


  1. Love your layout, and your flowers are fab! I've got a Woodware punch winging it's way to me, and I can't wait to have a play :D

  2. Great LO - am very into the bobbly stuff at the moment! I also love the torn-to-reveal effect - works so will with your colour and subject.

  3. fab lo love the distressed look :) great flowers...another punch to look out for

  4. Those flowers are adoreable I need to see how those are created - I've got the paper artsy flower dies maybe they would work ?

  5. Your flowers are wonderful! Love that soft look on your layout page, and that 'V' shape of striped paper behind - it you tear the paper? Lovely stuff!
