Hi Everyone, this weeks Cheery Lynn Designs project is a creation I can use on my work desk for all my pens, rulers, and odds and ends. The purse is a wood kit made by Kaisercraft, and stands at 6 inches tall. I adhered gorgeous My Minds Eye papers to the inside and outside. As this project is going to be used I did not decorate any of the sides or back - just highlighted the front.
I have many favourite Cheery Lynn Design dies.... but the Lace Rose and Flourish has the most adorable swirls, leaves and curls. This die can be cut into smaller pieces to decorate, or used in one long flourish. As you can see with my project I cut my pieces to 'fit' my project.
The flowers were created from tissue paper, and the Scalloped Window Stackers. You can create a variety of flower sizes using the Scalloped Window Stacker dies and various paper mediums. All I did to create the two on my project was cut multiple layers of tissue paper, from the varying sizes of each die. Each layer was crunched up in my hands to 'crinkle' and a brad put through the middle to hold each layer together. I separated some of the layers to give a little more dimension. On the smaller flower, I wet a few petal edges with water lightly and curled the edges in slightly.
The leaves I used for this project are the Judy's Blooms die set, which comes with the flower and leaves. Also, Pine Branches were added to give a little more character to the flower. AND, I just had to place a Small Exotic Butterfly onto the project .... I so love them!
To complete the project, a small amount of stickles was applied to highlight the die cuts.
This weeks challenge at the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog is "Lots of Layers" - call on over to see what Bonnie and Sandy have created as examples for the challenge, they are both cute! You can find all the challenge information "HERE".
