Makin' Flowers!!

I know I keep saying it but I am 

SOOOO READY
for Spring!!!

So...seeings as I think it may be
awhile before we see any flowers
here in Northern New Hampshire....
especially after the foot or more
of snow we just got...
I decided to make MY OWN!!


I began with a decorative ball I found at
Creative Habitat.

I then pulled out my stash of
Mistable Papers from Canvas Corp Brands,
Corduroy,
Boucle ~ White
Suede,
Linen ~ White,
and my FAVES...
Brushed Cotton and
Frayed Cotton,
my Big Shot....
a few dies
and some Primary Elements
for color.


I just love how the papers took the colors
and how they moulded soooo
beautifully!! 


Each of the papers respond differently
to the colors depending on the weight
and texture of the paper....
which makes each of the flowers
very unique just like you
would find them in nature!!



I love how the Corduroy paper
when die cut with a Budding Branch die
is so light and airy against
the stiffer Frayed Cotton
die cut Acorn Foliage.

Hope my Flower Ball
has brought a ray of sunshine
into your world....
FYI: Spring HAS TO COME.....
right??!??!??!
