All things bright and beautiful...
Another dreary, freezing rain day in east central IL. I'm wondering if I have a touch of S.A.D. so decided it was time to bring out some bright colors to lift my mood.
This is a flower magnet for my refrigerator. The scalloped base is about 4" across and is from a Spellbinders Octagon Scalloped Die cut sprayed with various yellows, oranges, and pinks. The multi-layered flower is Spellbinders' Scalloped Circles using maps, dictionary pages and tissue paper. I did scrunch and spray each layer before assembly. Old buttons bring the layers together. The floral sprays were a find at a floral arts store that was closing; the leaves are fabric and cut using one of Wendy's stamps. I preferred the back side of the fabric for one leaf and added ink to the other fabric leaf to make the white not so bright.
Tomorrow I'll post the card I made using more of the same colors. It is definitely bright!
