Roses are red......

But not today mine are yellow! I have been messing around with paper to fashion some roses with. (lots of different tutorials on Youtube)
As you can see I need to practise lots more as the middle is not right and I havn't got the petals spaced out evenly.
The greenery is real so am going to figure out how to make some from paper.
Here they are with some real roses! Makes a bigger boquet and they compliment the real ones nicely, in fact Head Honcho had to look twice! The lady who makes paper roses in US www.mymommymakesroses.com charges upto $90 for one rose....will have to up my game a bit! :0D

The other thing I've been fiddling with and also need some more practise with is Fluffy Florence.
Here she is eating the daisies in the garden. (yes, she is a sheep if you can;t figure out what she is :0P ) You can't see her feet as Florence is knee deep in grass. I saw this tutorial on here and as I've got some fluffy black and white wool left over from my dancing bunnies the next step was a flock of sheep!

I will link up to these parties;

  3. I think the roses are great - you are being too critical. I bet that no-one would see the difference if you didn't tell them - try it! Also love the sheep - so cute :)

  8. They are incredible! Do you have to tint the paper to get the darker edges? Amazing!
