For my circle,I first cut out triangles,distressed the edges,then put a dab of glue in the center of the triangle & placed them on to the circle. Once the glue dried I lifted the edges with my finger,so that you could see the layers, I then punched in eyelets, & weaved in white embroidery thread. My next step was to make my open circle,that I distressed,then punched in eyelets, then weaved in cheesecloth & pearls. .Once I completed that I glued it down to the main circle,then glued the circle on to a doily,then onto my already distressed stitched LO……0384f026-e581-407f-b98c-b7bfbd7b8905_zps587eca43

I love to work with Maja papers,they distress & layer so nicely. I made the banner by starting with a piece of lace,attached cloths pins,then punched out tiny flowers with some of the scraps I was working with. I glued the flowers to the banner & added pearls. The tiny white roses are from I am Roses………a7bc5b9b-d397-4ffc-88f7-ff594d594043_zps40e9cf9a

I used picket fence crackle on the stem part of the flourish & on the flowers I used Shimmerz paints texturez (tidy widy),then added some bling………f063b20f-c5e6-40b4-a13f-629835b4fd2d_zpsfda81fc3

I first used red pepper ink on the wordlet girl,then I applied distress fired brick stickles. Here is a LO I did for the Scrap Fx Blog Hop using Flannel Shirt bs from the “Walking in the Forest Collection”.ff6805e0-6235-4324-af15-420290b34084_zps3326ba1f

The photo is a close up of one of my first spring blooming plants,a bleeding heart. Yes I am feeling a bit manic right now,I still have a lot of work to do to get my garden going, but I hope I will have all my spring clean up & planting done,by the time I make my next post. Thank you so much for taking the time to look……RachelleRachelle-sign (2)
