I chose this theme as it’s pretty much all-encompassing and any type of media will be fine! I’m guest hosting again at Mixed Media Monday, which is just as well because if I hadn’t got this prepared, I’d be in the blogging doldrums. There just aren’t enough hours in the day for me currently – the college course is really taking its toll, but I have caught up a bit thanks to half-term, so I’m not in such a state of panic…
I fell in love with ruffled flowers when I saw a couple of tutorials online. My flower-pins are very shabby and I use torn strips of thin/lightweight fabrics to achieve the scruffy ruffled effect. I then add beads, buttons or recycled jewellery parts to embellish them (read “tart them up”!!).
Here are a few more examples, which I am taking to the Family Arts & Crafts Day on June 19th. I shall be demonstrating how to make them and selling the kits!
These are so easy to make, I finished my 6 different examples in one sitting. Fun and unique, you could really make one for every outfit or occasion, couldn’t you?!
See you again when I can… and I hope you enjoy the challenge this week! 🙂
