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 joi
n 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.

Supplies: Paper bags, scraps of dp, misc ribbons & fibers, foam dots and Spellbinders Label #14.
