It's PTI blog-hop time! I'm so excited to see what everyone's come up with - there are so many ways to use flowers in our work. Since I'm desperately longing for a real spring (the kind that comes with sunshine and some warmth) I decided to go all "birds and blooms" with this one.
For each flower, I cut 6 flower-fusion #1 shapes. Each layer was folded, folded again and then stitched in place. I love the frayed edges, and that each flower looks a bit different. I also die-cut the banners from an old t-shirt and stamped on them with text-style II. I did the same thing on the leaf die-cut after stamping it with vintage cream.
I think I'm a little obsessed with banners lately. Love making them, love looking at them. There are a few that haven't been taken down in the house from the kids' parties...I even whipped up a cute banner for my kids to hold up during our family photoshoot this morning. Speaking of which - time to put on some makeup and get everyone going! I can't wait to sit down with a tea later this afternoon and make my blog-rounds! Have a great day and thanks for looking.
