reincarnated .... yet again



I have this little topiary fake tree ... that is well past its prime ... so, i have been decorating it with papaer flowers for the Pick of the Patch shop. In December it was all covered in christmassy yoyo's and a giant paper bow, In January I made bell shaped pink flowers with bead centers, and little butterflys on wires flying above the tree. The other day i revamped it for spring ... although it looks more like late summer to me ... it is supposed to at least be reminiscent of spring. I learned how to do these daisy's on the Craft Sylish site. They were designed by the incredible paper artist Jeff Rudell. Mine are kind different ... i went on a tearing frenzy .... no clean cut looking daisies for me ... i also glimmer misted the top layer and just used a punch to make the center. now if only i could master his other techniques ... check out these wigs!!!! smokin gorgeous!!!
So, that's my little tree ... not quite up there with the pro's but i like it just the same. As always, thanks for stopping by!
