This year’s theme for International Women’s Day, “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women” seeks to strengthen international community’s commitment to put an end to violence against women.
Our guest designer for this challenge is Darnell. Make sure you stop on by her blog and give her some love for agreeing to join us!
I was inspired by the challenge at The Friday Mashup! to create a monochromatic project with flowers.
I decided I wanted to make something to sit on my desk so I would remember this commitment, so I found an extra little picture frame I had and got to work making some flowers!
It's been a while since I have loved one of my projects and I honestly LOVE this one! I am so glad that I decided to do a frame so I can look at it often. It just makes me HAPPY and with the weather we have had for the past two plus months, I NEED some happy! lol I had so much fun making these flowers. I was terrible the first couple of times I used the Spiral Flower Die, but the more I play with it, the better my flowers look. I've also found that you can bend the petals in different ways to get different looks, and add more an more layers to get a thicker flower, like the one at the bottom of the frame. If you are struggling with it like I did, the key to it really is to just play with it and have fun!
