In Full Bloom

1,2,3 Challenge

This month's challenge at 1,2,3 Challenge the criteria were

1. Colour - orange

2. Word - Bloom

3. Technique - hand made flowers

This was my first try at these coiled fabric flowers... they didn't come out too bad for my first attempt.  I used a Basic Grey cutwork paper and some orange paint for the background then sprayed a bit of smooch spritz in blue for a bit of contrast.  A touch of lace and a doily for a bit of texture and I couldn't resist a bit of bling.

Thanks for stopping by :)
