Flower Power

Hello there 
Just like to thank you very much for visiting and commenting on my last post :)
lovely to catch up with blogging buddies. Particularly as I hadn't been blogging for quite a while.
Hugs XXX

This week I was having a blog trawl and came across the latest challenge on 
Frilly and Funky they are asking for lots and lots of handmade flowers
Fantastic :) as I love making flowers so therapeutic.

Also asking for us to Build it up over at FSC

I have this gorgeous bought photo frame and it is perfect for decorating the center.

I choose a colour palette of Blue and Cream (one of my favorite) 
used some new papers I have by docrafts for the center and the handmade flowers.
I stamped the paper with the flowers and the bird cage in blue 
added a layered strip of contrasting blue paper 
and another layer of the little girl 
I used water colour pencils (blue) to tint the flowers in the girls hair
and of course made all the flowers with the same papers to finish the decoration
 and added two plain cream punched flowers which I have text stamped to finish.

*just to be sure I did not decorate the outer frame this is how it was bought* 

Hope you are all keeping clear of those horrendous floods 

Have a great week.

Hugs Sandra X

PS! Shhhhh New bears coming soon :)

Great additions to this beautiful frame Sandra. Never thought to use the water colour pencils for much at all and they have made your flowers look amazing

Love Chrissie x
