11.20.2010 Craft Warehouse Assignment #3

About two weeks ago I submitted my Design Team Assignments for project #3. This month we worked with Echo Park's "Everybody Loves Christmas" and Basic Grey Lines "Wander" and "Pyrus." It was so much fun. I wish I would have had more time to take some great photos of the projects. This project was a quick one due within three weeks and it was really hard to get into the Christmas swing of things. :)

11.19.2010 Mother in Law Gift: Day One

OK...The project is started. I started last night glimmer misting Eight 6x6 BasicGrey papers.

This morning I punched over 50 retro flowers from the Glimmer Misted paper. I used four flowers to make each rose. I glued each layer together and then put a pearl in the middle of each one and curled each petal. Then I finger painted stickles on the top of each flower.

Now it is back to thinking time. I would like to cover the bottom of the lantern with the flowers and somehow get a picture of her Grand kids in there but I need some height . I thought about using one of those battery powered candles to put in the middle but would have to hot glue the flowers on the bottom so she can move the candle in and out to turn it on and off. What do you think?
