Be You- Guest Designer at Petaloo

I was very honored when the owner of Petaloo asked me to be a GD this month on their blog.

There is also a blog hop next week at the Petaloo blog so come join us and celebrate.

They are having a product exchange with Simple Stories’ new collection “Vintage Bliss” and its very girly so I was able to use lots of flowers. Here is a sneak peek of one of the projects I made.
Come join us next week to see everyone’s projects and some more of mine.

I masked a cherry blossom Crafters Workshop template with some gesso and added these pink forget-me-nots to the stems.
Whenever I have a wooden background paper, I like to roll it up to make look like peeled wood or bark. I truly love this effect and have been using it a lot lately.
Finally I decorated around the photo using lots of different flowers.
Supply list:
Papers: Simple Stories
gesso, cheese cloth, CW template, black pen
Petaloo flowers:
Ruffled roses- pink
Frosted roses: teal/aqua
Petaloo accessories: pins

    Keren, this is fabulous. I love all the layers and how you did the white stems and added the flowers! ( I'm going to have to look for that template). This is just so so pretty! I would agree with Desire, it's one of my all time fave's of yours too!

    Oh, yum! I love the whitewashed wood background, especially with those trailing flower sprays against it. How cool to have the dimensional flowers added to the stencilling – altogether delicious!
