Good morning all,
A very quick post as I have a very busy day ahead of me. My son comes home from University today!! Being that Anthony is my youngest and the last one at home, when he is away at Uni the house becomes very quiet indeed (except when the grandson is with us). He is quite a quiet lad and keeps himself to himself alot, working on his pc in his room alot of the time. However, I still miss him around the house. I walk past his door and go to look in on him or I suddenly remember and feel a little tug in my tummy. Oh us mums are daft things at times aren't we.
Ok, now on to todays card. I'm sorry I wasn't able to do my 'something different' card, I haven't had the time. I made alot of the items on the card myself. Something, as you probably know by now, I like to do alot.
First was the flower, I bought a bag of Petals from the NEC approx 3years ago as they were selling them off rather inexpensively and I thought they would come in handy. Well I started with a circle of card and my Incredibly Tacky glue and just layered the petals in circles until I had filled to the center. I trimmed it back a little until I was happy with the shape and then fixed my pretty center and left it overnight to dry.
The center of this flower is really effective, don't you think. I created this by squeezing a 10p sized ball of Creative Expressions PVA in silver onto my craft mat and then I shook over some silver Decoballs (similar to Microbeads and Beadazzles). I let it dry overnight and then attached it to my card with the Incredibly Tacky glue. To save waiting time for future projects, I made up a couple of these, some in different colours too.
The center to this flower was created using a method that the lovely Jenny used on her fabulous card too. PVA glue with seed beads. I used Pearl PVA with irridescent seed beads and a sprinkling of Creative Expressions Aurora glitter, just a tad more sparkle.
This is more 'over the top' for me, but I do like to ring the changes and after making that lovely big flower, I just got carried away.
Well thats it for today, I'm sorry its so short but I am shattered and need to sleep. I just hope I haven't made any bad errors with my grammar or spelling....LOL!.
Thank you for stopping by, I will do my best to visit everyones blogs this evening and see what lovely creations you have to share. Take care and have a fab day.
