Making Paper Garden?

My friend  & sister of the the heart had asked about my paper roses.http://itsarealpain.wordpress.com/2012/09/12/day-114-help/ This is for her  I have a close-up of a couple that were made  ( 20 ) for a Red Hat High Tea in 2011. Although I do create them just out of paper and adhesive they are not my original technique; they can be found in plenty in the paper art world. Making them especially in the evening with music relaxes me.  Works out great for a lowly old piece of paper. These paper roses were used to decorate individual tea boxes that sat on each table. They have nothing else embellished to them. There a few other ways to dress them up and one is using micro=glitter so it looks like fine drops of dew. Fun.~

A few Hand Crafted Cards

These are two images of an embroidered card I did in blue tones. One image is meantto be a more close up shot of the word ” Hi”  and flower to focus on the embroidery.

Creating hand made cardsis one of my passions and I am looking forward to creating my gallery of my work here justso I can watch my progress from time to time.

 It was easy to just write my word “Hi”, draw my flower,  then I pre-punched the holes around my word that then made embroidering a piece of cake. Even for this lady who does not sew, not on cloth anyway. Been known to  buy a sewing machine just for paper though.

Thanks for looking!
