Grunge paper rose brooches

I have finally got round to trying out my grunge paper, and it works really well :)  These are tree presents for some of the ladies in my family - I used the TH tattered flowers and leaves dies for this, used a spritzer with distress ink and perfect pearls in to colour the grunge paper (I had to mix the yellow and blue for the green leaves but it worked ok).  I then stamped a texty stamp on all the components and inked around the edges of the flowers and leaves.  I used the rose technique, where you cut one slit and then put 2 leaves on top of each other, I did this for all three different sized flowers to make them 3d, I used PVA to stick them together.  Then I curled the petals and leaves, and used a glue gun to stick all the layers together.   I did stitch the centre beads of one of the brooches, but then realised that the glue gun held them just as well so glued the others.  The last step was to add some rocky candy for a bit of shimmer and to add a safety pin to the back.  Here are some close ups

2010 minibook

Just a quick blog, and apologies for not having been around much lately!  We have been having some building work done and it has meant that we have been painting and decorating and that I have had no space to scrap.  However I did manage to get my Christmas minibook done for my Grandma, I wanted it to be bright so used some DCWV pictures, and a selection of photos from this year.
