Purple Stamens love these ...picture doesn't do it justice, but these are so pretty

Blessed Mixed Media Plaque

Happy Monday peeps. Today I wanted to share with you all a wooden plaque, measure just shy of 7" that I picked up from Michael's. I used all kinds of goodies on this and really love how it turned out. It's been awhile since I have played with some of these materials to.....Enjoy!

And don't forget there's still time to enter the Magnolia-licious Challenge for this month.  ....Come and play along with us. 

 Hope to see you there...

I'm still learning how to play with foamiron. The pink flowers with stamens inside are the foamiron flowers. This material feels so much like the real thing. I also used some gesso, modeling paste/stencil and some Tattered Angels glimmer mist spray to create the background.  Added some tore up corrugated box as a layer, a bunch of flowers, a couple paper straws and some odds and ends from my stash.

 You can purchase some of these items from the Magnoli-licious Store if you're interested. Just click on the name and the link will take you right to the store....
Flower Dies (you're not limited to just these.You can use really any of them in the store)


Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day....hugs from a cold Charm City...

This is a card I made that I thought would make for a cute note card to someone. January is a time for snowmen and winter wishes. Isn't this just a darling image? How about those foamiron flowers. I simply am loving making flowers using this material. Have you tried it yet? If not, what the hell are you waiting for. Stop over at the Magnolia-licious Store and check it out. And you can run this through your Cricut machines or any other one that you use.Steel dies are awesome also. Seriously, this is some kewl material to play with. I have so many ideas running through my head, I just don't know what to make first.

and some odds and ends from my very trusty vintage

 you can see the Stickles shine in this photo...I also cut vinyl--snow day--to fit on that Junkitz tile...


 Well thanks for stopping by. Hope to see everyone over at the Mag Challenge...and remember to stop in at the store and get yourself some of those goodies....have a great day......Hugs from Charm City....
