I've been waiting for this my whole life...well actually just since I found out about it a few weeks ago. Either way, I'm super excited about it. If you haven't joined yet it's not to late, just pop on over to Some Days Are Diamonds and follow the simple directions.
Con-tain-it by Roberta. She featured folded candle shades which reminded me of folding paper fans. BINGO! I thought I'd try to make a vintage paper fan and use the photo as the paper. At 11:00 PM, I literally trashed that idea by crumpling up my 5th 'prototype' and throwing it across the room in frustration. I know, it was a little dramatic to throw it, but I was annoyed.
FYI- this is where I create- in my living room, curled up on the couch, using the coffee table as my desk. I have a real desk in the other room, but it's new and I don't want to mess it up.
I was having creators block so I opened the assigned picture and stared at it for longer than I care to admit. I also drank my 2nd cup of coffee and watched The Price Is Right.
I escaped the whole creative process with only one glue gun burn..thats a low number for me!
Here it is. I used green satin ribbon which was left over from my wedding last October. I used velum paper to make the pedals, also left over from my wedding. As a matter of fact, I think my wedding was the last "creative" project I worked on.
Thank you for visiting Living & Loving in California. I look forward to seeing what all the sisters created and making new friends.
