A bunch of red roses.

This post is a bit earlier this week due to no computer tomorrow.
Getting carried along with making paper roses I made 3 reddy pink ones.
I re-dipped the 3 yellow ones that I showed before here in some red paint so they are now an orangey red colour and match the reddy-pink ones.

Here is the other side of the vase showing the pink ones.  The greenery is 2 pieces of paper with a wire glued inbetween. Needing no water or looking after, just how I like it!


They now reside on my bedside table, which used to be plain pine and just how they were bought from the shop in the sale (of course!), lived with it for a year and then got my act together and got the wardrobes painted at the same time. It took 1coat of primer and about 3 topcoats! I just waxed the top and knobs with some coloured wax we've had in the shed for about 25 years!



Also finished the bathroom off at long last. Adding tiles along the wall where the radiator is as the heat kept curling the wallpaper up. Son said, 'why have bird cages in the bathroom'? I said 'why not, makes a change'!
Anyway we like it, so that's that :0D

  11. Oh, those roses are to die for. I have loads of paper flowers pinned on my Pinterest boards with the intention of making some when I get time. I am loving your bathroom mirror (and the wallpaper) - did you make that too?

  18. I never would have guessed that those roses weren't real. Gorgeous. I love your birdcage wallpaper.

  19. I do love your roses, and I have a tendency to kill off all plants and flowers very quickly by forgetting to water them, so they'd be ideal!

    I think I would just fall in love with your house if I ever visited.

  20. It confounds me how you can make such realistic paper roses. How you get the subtle mottled colouring when you dip them is pretty amazing too!
