Happy Wednesday Everyone!
It's time for our weekly jaunt across the globe to view other creative desks courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground. This was the state of my desk last night when I went to bed.
I've been experimenting with different sizes of rosettes and different versions of paper flowers. My church is having their annual fall Ladies dinner next month and I've been asked to provide a centerpiece for one of the dinners tables. Our theme this year is Beauty and the verse is Psalm 90:17 "Let the beauty of the Lord be upon us, and establish the work of our hands." For some reason I immediately thought of beautiful papers flowers....nature, made by hand, the work of MY hands, etc.
This rose was made following this tutorial from Stamp with Bernie. Very pretty and not too bad for my first attempt.
This was an experiment using a retired SU punch. Not real thrilled with this one....yet.
This is my favorite so far. It's made with five scallop circle punches, cut at every other scallop, shaped, fluffed up and layered. I added a button for the center as it needed something. It's a wee bit time consuming, though, with the extra cutting and shaping required.
I may go buy some crepe paper streamers and work with those. I think they might be more "forgiving" to work with for the rolled roses.
This is one I did a while back. It's also made with five scallop circle punches. They're simply scrunched up, layered and spritzed with smooch spritz and held together with a brad. I like this style also.
If you have any recommendations for some pretty (and easy) paper flowers, please let me know! I only have about three weeks before the ladies dinner.
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves.
