This week has been a total creative black hole - with lots of sickness in our home - it's that time of year isn't it! So I was a little disappointed to find I had little time to puddle around with the Creative Colour Challenge run by the talented Louise Gale. As a result, I was left mulling ideas over in the wee hours of the night, which isn't a bad thing to be truthful as I find I tend to get most of my creative ideas when I should be sleeping - do you find that? One side of the brain is saying "sleep", but the other side of the brain is saying "if you try this...mix that...blend, glue, stick, print..." :-) Maybe it is all that coffee LOL
Anyway, in my mulling I came up with the idea for making a little gift box using fabric roses, as I thought the gorgeous colour would be perfect. So, when the lovely headed away last night for work, I sat myself down in the quiet and made some burnt roses in turquoise!
The best tutorial I have found for making these is at DuhBe. I decided to make some in satin, and also an organza and was really pleased with the results. Not only that, I had a blast making these as they were dead easy! Yes, I got addicted very fast, so be on the look out for these to pop up everywhere LOL
I teamed a couple of my results with a little white gift box I had and some pale turquoise ribbon! And tah-dah!!!
I hope everyone has a super fabulous weekend - I for one am going to steal some time to make some more roses and complete a bunch of projects I have started around the house.
