FEBRUARY 2012 - FLOWERS

Post by Lorraine on Thu 19 Jan 2012 - 16:26

February's swap is flowers. Very Happy

You are to each make 3 flowers or blossom type things. They must be handmade. You can use any technique or materials you like..fabric, dies, freehand...whatever, but no shop bought ones. Mr Green

Flowers to me by Friday 24th February.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

I shouldn't think there are any size guidelines, Karelyn - sounds like a take-it-as-it comes sort of construction!

I do worry though Lynda, I don't want to make half inch things if others are making 2" or make 5" either if that's going to be too big.

I reckon 2 to 3 inches should be fine. Mr Green Not too big, not too small.

Not sure that mine will be 2", Lorraine: I tend to do ones that you can group together or use as a single accent on a card with other things "going on" iyswim. Guess it will come down to which of us scraps and which makes cards.

Any size you want Billie. Mr Green

Remember though girls, although you may be a cardmaker, your flowers may go to a scrapbooker and vice versa. Toothy Grin

Larger Flowers can be the central focus on a card, I've done that a few times. having said that don't know about you lot but I very rarefly use swapped stuff....it just seems wrong LOL. I would probably keep them on my desk shelf and stick them on the side so I can see them all the time. LOL
