I hope these flowers brighten your May Day!
My friend pointed flowers like these out to me on etsy the other day. I think they are a great idea for packages or wrapped into some of your other altered projects (perhaps on a spiral notebook instead of all that furry fiber stuff?)
To make the flowers, I used 24 gauge wire with fluorite, glass and sterling silver beads. Assembly is easy. Cut varying circles out of varying papers. I used tissue, vintage history about Genghis Khan and shimmery water color paper I made using Ph Martin paints. Oh, the best part? Look closely, I worked in my favorite stamps from justjohanna rubber stamps too!
This also fits this week’s Artword: Botanical. Have not checked out Artword yet? It’s an awesome site, not as overwhelming as Illustration Friday. Go take a look! There is a new word every Sunday.
