My Take on Tissue Flowers

I went a little crazy with the walnut ink , but I think I like how these flowers turned out. I added shredded paper to the centers, and a little bling with some vintage aurora borealis or amber earrings at the center. Have you seen these moss covered rocks at the dollar store? They are in the wedding section, such a cute accent.

I'm looking forward to welcoming a visitor from the East, our daughter Kristen! She'll be here for the holiday weekend. I am gonna squeeze her, and kiss her, and call her George! (A family joke!) I am the happiest when all my kids are home.

Thanks to dear Dawn of The Feathered Nest for mentioning me on her incredible blog. She has been so kind and supportive, and her talent just blows me away. She shares ideas and vintage images daily, and takes the time to support new blogs. Her comments make my day, as do all of the comments I receive. That encouragement means the world to me. My thanks to each of you.

Have a wonderful holiday, and enjoy this beautiful day.

Hi Penny,
Your paper flowers turned out great. I am going to try my hand at making them. There are so many great projects that I would like to do. I am enjoying reading your blog and am going to read some more.

Hi Penny!

I know...sweet Dawn *sigh* what a blessing she is! I was so touched when she took the time to do a post including us. And your flowers turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I personally don't think you used too much stain ;-) I think they're great. I'm definitely going to have to try and attempt making them. I love all of the creative inspiration we all get to share as bloggers. It's just so much fun! Have a wonderful weekend, new friend. I'll be adding you to my favorites. Love to you.
