Deb's Flowers

Wow, what  lovely surprise when Deborah popped up as our newest Guest Designer. So proud of her. She is a very talented and lovely lady. We were the new girls together not so long ago.
I had to have a go at her challenge and had no wreath so thinking cap on!

I found a sun hat that was lying in a cupboard upstairs that needed brightening up so that was the answer. Maybe Darcy could wear it at the festival in the summer!

I die cut some flowers and separated them into 2 piles. painted one group with Rose, Sherbert and Pansy and group @ with Vanilla, Chocolate pudding and Irish Cream. They didn't link up well so I touched up group 2 with some Rose from the other group. Next I distressed inked the edges and sprayed them and scrunched them up.
Just want Deborah to know that this is a long and arduous task for Little Miss Impatient and so was a labour of love to honour your launch.
Next , after assembling them I filled the centres with Glossy accents and sprinkled Beadazzles onto them.
I attached the flowers to ribbon and twine and bedecked the hat.
I would never have the patience to do  whole wreath but enjoyed playing.
Happy Mothers Day y'all…!!

  7. Very pretty, they work great on a hat as well as the wreath. I like hats, I have qualifications in traditional millinery and loads of handmade hats in boxes in the attic. I never have an excuse to wear them.

  13. What a wonderful idea to make a hat! It works so well to use a touch of pink as a link up colour. It was a joy to see debs pop up on paper artsy!
