~ Smile ~ Crafty Secrets and other goodies

Smile1

~ a little spring wreath from Melissa Frances ~ a locket from Blue Moon Beads ~

~ crinkled paper flowers ~

(I was inspired by a little something I saw on pinterest I think, but for the life of me I can't remember what... please tell me if you see something like this that I may have "stolen" the idea from!)

:: hand-cut / punch mini circles of patterned paper :: squash and crumple them up :: shabbify them with some ink :: add pearls ::

I used the lovely vines from Art Blooms by Crafty Secrets. Filled in the details with simple white and olive colored pencils... (persisting in my copic rebellion here) ;) ...

Something small to brighten a dear one's day, remind her to smile.

I have a bunch of lovely, lovely fabrics that I want to mess with, so I'll take my leave now. Be back for the weekend post.

beautiful thursday!!!

  11. Your little paper flowers are so sweet. I think the colored pencils give the vines a softer look than had you used Copics. :)
