WOYWW ....made it again!

 Wow - made it to WOYWW two weeks running, I'm on a roll now..still haven't had much time for visiting but as Julia says it's supposed to be fun and we mustn't feel pressured..so want to say a global thanks to people who visit and comment, I do read and appreciate them all and enjoy the desks I snoop and apologise for not always being able to stop and comment. So on my desk this week are ongoing Christmas card projects and the results of my play with the dried flowers I found (last weeks WOYWW here).
Elizabeth kindly reminded me (thank you) that I could find the tutorial here on Lynn's blog and I happily adapted it as I went along without all the exact materials to create these two pieces....they need trimming of course and perhaps a little ink round the edges....

The left one is my fav of the two - now just have to decide what to do with them, Lynn makes book marks with this technique but I've made wider pieces so may frame them or use for a book cover perhaps...

  12. Very pretty. They look like some pressed flower pictures I purchased in France on a holiday when I was young and single and had money to burn! LOL! I had them framed and they hang above my bed.

  13. Those purple ladies are stunning, and I think the flowers would make great book covers. It looks like a breath of spring in the depths of a frosty autumn.
