It's Friday (in case you forgot!) and I have a few things to share with you today.
First, I made these awesome looking fabric flowers using a tutorial provided in the Do it yourself group over at Pages in Time.

I think that they are so pretty and soft!

On another note, I made another layout.

I started with a white sheet of paper. Because I don't have Tim Holtz masks, I made my own out of a transparency using my pazzles (would you call me cheap or inventive LOL). I adhered it using Zig large glue pen (it's a re-positionable glue) and inked and sprayed a water mixture with acrylic paint to my heart's content! Boy was this messy! LOL

I distressed the sides of the now brown paper and let it dry. This is what it looked like when I finished:

I then cut up some pieces of the yummy Basic Grey Origins pattern papers that I got recently and distressed them using Craftysprinkles Easy water distressing technique and put the aside to dry. The black fence I cut with the Pazzles and applied some Diamond Glaze on it to give it a shiny look to it. The flowers are another funny story.
As many of you know, I LOVE Prima flowers but every time I order from, they never have these:

Camelot Collection-Vanessa

so I decided to make my own to match this layout and came up with these. Now, I know that they don't quite look alike but I still love how mine came out! The green flourish is a prima felt piece shape that I cut out of pattern paper with the Pazzles (I gave it a lot of use yesterday!). The photo anchor is a Tim Holtz Grunge Board-Grungeboard Elements shape that I made out of dark brown cardstock, cut 5 times, with the Pazzles. Finally, the dragonflies I printed and hand cut them and added a little bling with the Diamond Stickles.

Here are a few close up pictures of the layout:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
