PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE
One of my most favorite challenges this week at The Pixie Cottage. It is flowers and we also have a great sketch for you to use if you choose. The team has some fabulous creations so be sure to stop by and leave them some love and join us.
My Pixie Cottage image is a very versatile one called Stump & Bench by Sandra Hammer. You can use it alone or perch whatever you choose on the bench. I used a cute Tilda.Something I really enjoy making are paper bag albums.They are so much fun with all the irregularities and possibilites. Mine are usually pretty funky and grungy but I made this one pretty clean and simple. I stitched a green and dotted lavender dp to matt my image on. The stripe was stitched and attached to the album. My flowers and leaves were made from a variety of papers.
I cut out and shaped the petals and leaves then attached as a spray around the image. The sentiments were cut out with a nestie and foam mounted. Finished it off with a flourish and mix of ribbons and fibers.
