Ivory Moon

Well ... I've had a few busy days so not much crafting has got done ....   I have more good new though ... I am now a member of the design team for LEJDesigns .... it feels like all my christmases have come at one lol ..... 

I have made this today and also worked on a few other projects I have on the go at the moment ... 

I have used an oasis flower ball, a wooden dowel rod and a terra-cotta pot... 
I stamped a swirly pattern on to white card then punched out (what felt like a million ) flowers from a punch that I have.   I then used a ball tool and a thick mat to make the flowers curl up then attached the flowers using small silver pins to the oasis ball .... I then glues a crystal gem to the centre of each flower to hid the head of the pin.

I cut strips of green tissue paper and rolled them around the rod to hide the wood.  I filled the pot with a bag of sand and fixed the rod into the sand and covered the top with moss...   

The ribbon i have used is wired and I bought this last christmas last year from Wilkinsons.

Hope you all like it ... thanks for taking the time to stop by and read my blog .... I would love to get some feed back and comments from you all xxxx

I got some great news today ... I am now a member of the Craftymess Design Team, I am so excited and can not wait to start on my first challenge.  

Yesterday I decided to decorate a jewellery box for my sister-in-law.  I bought the paper mache box from a craft store and painted it black using acrylic paints then decorated it using gold leaf flakes.  I them coated it a few times using Inka-Lack varnish to seal and protect it ..... hope she likes it
