Flowers I made!

Okay, I know I have to keep up with my blog! I'm so so awful at this! I have been working on a lot of projects (swaps) and finally got done with one of them. Right now I'm working on a Diva tag swap. I had a hard time making a decision on what diva I wanted to use. I knew that I wanted to use a pin-up girl and I was leaning toward Betty Paige. Then I started talking to my S.I.L and she told me about Vita Von Teese; she showed me a pic and oh my goodness I knew that I wanted to use one of her pics! I chose the most colorful one and then that inspired the flower that I made. I knew that I wanted to use feathers and pearls and then I saw a magazine! There was a picture of the new Prima flowers that were going to come out this summer and I fell head over heals over them! I truly want to buy them when they come out! With that said I tried to make my own...they came out pretty good for my first time! =)

I used the Tim Holtz Alterations: Tattered Flowers that my wonderful Husband bought me!

The buttons came mostly from RAKs that were given to me.

A different view of the flowers.

I love how they came out!

Here is the picture that inspired the flower! I'm so excited to finish up the tag!
