While at Silver Bella, I took Betz White's rosette frame class. Well if you know me....I can't do anything the 'taught' way. I had in my stash some bits of hand dyed velvet and we 'rosetted' it. On our way home I found this awesome piece of thick.... scrumptious..... luscious....are you getting the picture.....divine...glorious.....PINK.....velvet. Came home.....and viola'....a gorgeous velvet rosette covered in spectacular mica flakes. I made it into a pin and mailed it off to sweet Lulu in her gift box!
Now....if anyone knows me ummmmm.....just a little.....ummmm....I like to go over the top. I achieved it with this little ditty. Can you just say.....this might be the most beautiful thing I have ever created. It was a framed and soldered wedding picture of Lulu and Rick.....adorned with creamy white velvet.....several shades of seam binding and a gorgeous glittered leaf wreath. Did you know Lulu bought every shade of hug-n-snug.....part of the reason I love her so much...she's over the top like me.
Here's another candid of the creation. Hanging from a gorgeous apothecary jar filled with more glittered wreaths. Doesn't it look fabulous on my marble counter tops. These color combinations are really out of this world.....the photos just don't do them justice.
Adorned at the top of the ornament was this little extra.....a scripture tag glittered and scrumptious. Lulu didn't really know that to me....she really is the salt of the earth. I am thrilled I met such a neat lady.
