Let's first say my biggest wish that I always have is to have "time". I just can't figure out where the time each day goes and why I can't seem to organize my time better!
ANYWAY ... With the month of May bringing warmer weather (finally) and blooms everywhere, plus the special Sunday that we celebrate Mother's day, my project was to create something that would be appropriate for this time.
Here I created two different stick pins using Sizzix flowers dies. The sunflower was made using one of the new thinlits™sets by Susan Tierney Cockburn. The lavendar roses used the Sizzix Flowers, 3-D die and fabric paper.
The little green bud vase was recycled and repurposed from and old Clinique make-up bottle. After washing it out and sanding the print off the bottle, it was painted in a mottled effect with a few layers of Tim Holtz Distress Paint and Ranger Adirondack Acrylic Paint. The top of the bottle was covered with a small piece of woven ribbon. Tie on a tiny Sizzlit Crescent tag with your wish.
The bud vase can be used to hold handmade flowers or any little bloom picked from your Spring garden.
So now I will send "WISHES" to all for sunshine, flowers and good things!
