Watch the flowers Bloom

Here is yet again another picture from my penpal...I cherish these pictures so much because there are so many places out there that I want to see but sometimes its just not possible to get to all of them....he says these are from "Views from Butchart Gardens ( yes he numbered the pictures and then wrote out what each and everyone was from there are 18 in total from this batch most are from Seattle some are from Vancouver Island, Britsh Columbia,Canada) I just loved the fountain in the background!

I used the sketch from Skissedilla #196 and I also added the rosettes that S.W.A.T showed me how to make this morning...she made it sound so easy!

sketch #196






 see the little white rosettes, I used a flower punch for the bottom instead of a circle....it makes it look like an open rose and I didn't add a center because I made them small and the looked just fine the way there were.. I also used a dab of hot glue to hold the knot in the center( I couldn't get my other glue to hold it) but used the other glue on the rest. I think I was just to impatient and couldn't wait for it to take hold LOL
thanks for coming to take a peek!

  7. I love the look of the scalloped circle for the base of your rosette! I have yet to try this technique at all, but when I do, I just may use your approach :)
