I felt like doing a LO with delicate warm spring colors. I wanted flowers and vines and a feeling of serenity. Spring is a time of renewal. And after a long and busy winter, I need renewed strength. But I am usually pretty quiet when it comes to complaining about being tired. You wont hear me whine..So I call this LO "Quiet Strength". I close my eyes, take a deep breath of the clean spring air and feel renewed. My life is still running in the fast lane at the moment..I must remember to pace myself. and as I sat in my scrap room today, working on this LO, I already felt stronger. At least until tomorrow morning when I am back to work...go go go..That will be me. All I can do is hope. Hope that peace will soon prevail...
Love the new Susan Winget K and Company papers. Birds, butterflies, dragonflies and flowers. The colors are beautiful!! The pattern is Botanical.
Did my Corner Punch Circle technique on this one. Placed some May Arts vine ribbon around it and dotted it with some Liquid Pearls.
Made some of my "Savage Beauties" except made little rosettes for the middles.
I used the pretty chip board from the Botanical Collection.
I just got the Ornamental Iron cartridge for my Cricut Expression . It is beautiful!! I cut the gate, although the card stock wasn't stuck to the mat all the way and it tore a little on top of the gate so I had to cut out a scroll. It still looks good. The Swirly Vines are the ones I share at Swirlydoos. You just download, print and cut.
This is a closeup of the flowers. I added 2 layers of flowers from my Alterations Tattered Florals Die for the large flower. Inked it and wet distressed it slightly before shaping them .
