March 16, 2011

PAPER WREATHS WITH A NEW TWIST

 I am, unfortunately, continuing to have issues with this new camera.  Just can't seem to get the pictures in to focus!!  Will keep working on it and maybe try some with some glasses on....maybe that is the problem??!!

Here is some more Laurel from Chipping with Charm inspiration for you!
I love how Laurel came up with the idea to add a flower to the center of her paper wreaths....so wanted to give it a try myself.

 I made quite a few paper wreaths for the Christmas season and wanted to continue on the paper theme for spring so these are the perfect addition to my paper line which I think is getting a bit out of control--more on that later!!



Soon to be available to buy at The Passionate Home in downtown Langley, as well as at The Festive Nest Spring Sale in South Surrey.

Happy day!

I just made some paper flower wreaths and was going to post about them this week. I love yours! About that camera...does it have a viewfinder adjustment by chance? I'm behind on reading your posts so if you've mentioned that I'm sorry. My camera has a little slide to adjust the focus of the viewfinder. I'm not sure I ever would have noticed it if I hadn't read the book. Just thought I'd mention it!

Very pretty. I think the flower in the center really brings it all together and creates a fantastic look.

Laurel said...

Ah-haha...Like I said "once you start you just can't stop" right??? Atleast it's better for you than potato chips and chocolate bars :)
So very, very pretty! I'm honored that you felt "inspired" because I sooo admire your style and creativity my friend! Blessings, Laurel

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

Janis, I love all your paper flowers - this post and the one before! Are they very time-consuming? They'd be perfect for a shower I'm planning, but my extra time is limited right now. Hmmm... Have you done a tutorial - or do you know of a good one?
