It's summer vacation season for the schools ....so it the time to handle bored kids who are happy either playing out ( way too hot for that now ) or play station games! So I have been busy trying to make arrangements for a boredom free vacation.Or at least a week !!!
In the meanwhile , not much crafting is getting done. I get so distracted with all the beautiful crafts I see online that I drive myself nuts. I feel like I have to try and make all the crafts - so many lavely crafts with paper, fabric, polymer clay, wood, paints, beads, glass ....get so tempted to try all different things and I end up trying at least a few. Does this happen to everybody or am I getting crafty mania?
Anyways, I have finally finished assembling and framing my quilled flower bunch.
I have seen so many lovely flowers and designs done with this technique. I decided to make poppies ( poppies are such pretty flowers because the colors are so pretty). So here is my take on it...
My husband thought that the flowers have a carved wooden look about them. He wouldn't believe me when I told him it was paper. I had to ask to see for himself.I guess this paper gives it the look and strength.
