Yes,Flowers!...

I am so happy to share the things I worked on this week. Flowers, lots and lots of flowers are needed for the hanging flower box. I attempted flower making before, but was never happy with the results. The thin clay roses that some artist make are absolutely beautiful, but I imagine they take a lot of time to make, so I decided to go with paper.
I want color variation, so I mixed and diluted several paints and colored the paper. The colors are beautiful!! Once the paper dried, I use an mini punch and started working. Yes time consuming, but not too bad. Feeling happy with the results. Next I will attempt Hydrangea and Geraniums based off of 1 inch mini tutorial.
This week I also completed the chair, made a hanging mail catcher, as well as installed the windows in the trailer.
