I tell everyone, “I was a gardener before I was a paper artist,” and this is why my flowers come as close to nature as I can possibly make them. Not only dimension, but the paper I use, products for shading and coloring, and today, embossing powder to create a natural-looking wreath to set my flowers on is important to me. Going that extra distance makes me HAPPY!
This project today started with creating an unique background using a plastic mesh bag that I bought new potatoes in. Dabbing Distress Ink over the bag made the interesting pattern that I placed my wreath on. I don’t throw anything away that may be used for backgrounds, something I’m sure you can relate to.
