We're back today with a gorgeous altered project by guest designer, Katrina Hunt. Here's what she had to say about it:
I have so much fun doing altered projects. I give myself no rules and just let myself create. I had an old embroidery hoop in my stash that the papers from the Pinwheel collection were just calling for me to use. I misted the paper that I “stretched” in the hoop. This made it easier to get it to lay flat. I hit it with a heat gun to dry it and then just trimmed the paper off the back. After doing that I glued the ribbon roses all along the hoop edge.
Supplies: Pinwheel Collection (Flip-Flops 12 x 12 paper-PWP311, Cart Wheels 12 x 12 paper-PWP312, Lemonade Stand 12 x 12 paper-PWP302, Sprinklers 12 x 12 paper-PWP307, Kite Strings 12 x 12 paper-PWP306, Pinwheel Label Stickers-PWS316, Pinwheel Letter Stickers-PWS317, Pinwheel Circle & Tag Stickers-PWS341)
I cut a few flowers out with my Cameo and popped them up with foam adhesive to create a cluster. I played with the placement quite a bit, but since the hoop was so small, they worked better in a cluster over to the side.
One of my favorite quotes is “enjoy the small things, because one day they will be the big things”. I played off the quote to make a quote that would fit into the space I had. I raised up the words “the small” with a label sticker to make them show up more.
This would certainly brighten up any day and I just love how inspirational the quote it. Come back next week to see some fun cards Katrina has whipped up.
This is gorgeous!!! LOVING the flowers!!!
