Well friends, it’s been a fabulous weekend for me and actually just ended this afternoon. (This might explain why I am so very late with this post.) Anyway, it was a well needed creative retreat with some incredibly talented friends. Spending time with Sharyn Sowell, Brenda Walton, Cathe Holden and Wanda Guess, along with Brenda’s friends Gina and her sweet mom, Vicki was THE best. Oh and I must mention Brenda’s husband Doug who waited on us hand and foot and drove us everywhere! We made bracelets and stenciled texture paste onto boxes, designed art with pressed flowers and spent all day Saturday making softies from our own imaginative patterns.;). Lots of laughter and so much kindness poured out from that place. Loved the time we shared and will never forget it.
Anyhow, today I am showcasing a project I made that Spellbinders featured on their blog last week. What I love most about this piece is that all levels of “makers” can do this.
If you don’t or can’t draw, tear a page out of your coloring book and add one of my tissue paper flowers to the top of the page. The directions for the Anemone or Positively Peony Flower are found here and you can purchase it here. You can also add the petals to the base flower that is shown, by using hot glue. Whatever is easiest for you.
