How has your week been? As you know I am back to work and my timetable has been tweaked I am now in one class with one child ( I do work with groups as well) someone realised that I couldn't do two jobs at the same time as my previous timetable stated. The change has made my week a lot easier.
The new challenge starts today on the Creative Artiste Challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes (but it does have to be a mixed media item). The sponsor this time is Things to Alter.
I have been practising making flowers for our daughter' s wedding ( you can read about our progress here). This time I decided to make a vase to put some of the flowers in this was just for fun not for the wedding.
This is our sponsor this time. I was sent lots of lovely embellishments to use.
I thought you might like to see how the project started out it is just a pink plastic picnic cup. I used a pretty tissue paper and some decoupage glue to cover the cup.
These are Kusudama flowers they are made by folding paper and gluing sections together. I have written instructions on how to make them just click on this link.
I added some Babies Breath decorations to the flowers.
I bought this lace at a craft fair a little while ago it is so pretty. The leaves you can just see were cut out of fabric with one of my Sizzix Bigz dies. I was able to cut several layers at the same time.
I have to admit that when the embellishments arrived from Things to Alter I had nearly finished this project but I found lots of these lovely wooden shapes and the fitted round the bottom of the cup.
This does look rather pretty sitting on the side and it gave me lots more practice with making the flowers.
I would like to enter Challenge 232 at the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog, Challenge 34 at the Crafting with Friends Challenge blog and the first challenge of the year at the Crafty Catz Challenge Blog.
