Pinterest: noun

is an online pinboard. Organize and share things you love

I am really, really enjoying making these wall hangings. I can make the embellishments as poofy as I want and don't have to worry about them getting smashed in my scrapbook or cost me an arm and a leg to mail them! PLUS I am using up my ever growing stash, so that's a major bonus!


Don Juan cartridge
K&Co. butterflies
Prima trim, rhinestones, flower and leaves
lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Glimmer Mists
Reminisce white pen
doily, twine and paper - misc.


I took the flat die cut and used my scissors to curl it so it sits "bowed out" on the sign. I took a tea bag from my cupboard and used it to get an idea of what a tea bag should look like and then took artistic liberty to add the flower, bling and sentiment to it. ;)


 The flower has 3 layers. The largest flower was in my stash, it had fallen off something along the way and since it's hard to throw away something...well...I got to finally use it :) The second layer is a doily that I cut out the center and then curled and scrunched it. The third layer is a Prima rose.

As for my camera lesson.... today, it's about using a tri pod. if you  have one, use it.! lol I get such a better job on close up shots! The picture on the left is hand held and the image on the right is tri pod. Now maybe you younger gals can  do without a tri pod, but it does help me and I'm not a  spring chicken anymore...::sigh::...so that means reading glasses and now tri pods...lol


 I got some of the ideas for this wall hanging from Pinterest ( like using that quote and words on the tea bag ) and if any of you want to be invited to join Pinterest then please let me know and I will add you to the list. But beware, Pinterest is addicting and a whole lot of fun!

So ladies, I sure hope everyone has a wonderful day, full of children that listen, bosses that appreciate you and husbands filled with love and pets that behave! Did I cover everything? ;)

I really enjoy pinning now and again, too. Your wall hanging is beautiful, and the colors are so soothing. I love that you pointed out that you can make the elements as poofy as possible...I run into that problem sometimes with cards.
