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.~
Paper Roses: materials: pattern scrapbook paper & Aileen’s Tacky adhesive
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.
