Sometimes I ask myself "why?!"? Just who do I think I am? I always have the most beautiful and amazing ideas floating around in my head, but when it comes time to execute these notions the synapses from my brain to my hands fail me! One of these days those neurotransmitters will work and I shall have a masterpiece. Hey, I'm still learning and continue to be a work in progress.
I borrowed the tattered floral die from my talented and lovely friend Wendy. I die cut coffee filters. I then added Eggplant Adirondack Alcohol Ink to water in my Mini Mister at varying amounts to get different hues of purple. Love purple! My favorite color! I believe I fell in love with purple because that was Donny Osmond's favorite color ... at least it was, back in the day. We won't share what "day" I'm talking about. I digress ... while the flowers were air drying, I cut a rosebud from the Art Philosophy cartridge. After assembling the rose, I sprayed the flowers and rose bud with Perfect Pearls Mist. Then, I put all the flower pieces together only to find that it overwhelmed the lil' My Creative Time Treat Box I put together. I removed the larger flowers, and added a Perfect Pearls misted label to the top of the box. I made use of the smallest tattered flowers by placing them on top of the Hershey nuggets and adding bling ... all the while eating almost every last one on those terribly addictive chocolates. Had a difficult time saving four for the treat box!
This is my creation that I'm entering in to Tim's Challenge. The oh-so-talented folks he's highlighted on his blog have created the most amazing flowers! I am constantly amazed at what people dream up! The talent is astounding!
