Springtime Bouquet

Hello again πŸ™‚

Just popping in for a quick little post on the cute Spring-y flower bouquet I made last night πŸ™‚ The flowers being from the devine bundle from Dreaming TreeΒ Alluring Florals.

I was going for only making the Gardenias, but it got too white and neutral for my taste, so I made some more flowers to make a small but very cute bouquet and put it in a Mason jar. Then I tied some hemp ribbon in a bow on the jar.

But to start with the Gardenia:

It’s made from AC Cardstock in White, Pine and Mint. I didn’t chalk the flower petals but only the stems and the leaves.

This is by far the easiest of all the flowers to make πŸ™‚ Imagine a whole bouquet of them as Wedding Bouquet ❀

To make this bouquet extra Spring-y I decided to make a Daffodil too and I used the one from the Daffodilly Spring bundle.

I used AC Cardstock in Banana, Melon and Spinach for this Daffodil and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink πŸ™‚

To mount it on the stem, I just used the same technique as for the rest of the flowers πŸ™‚ – that went surprisingly well πŸ™‚

The rest of the flowers are the same as for theΒ Floral Arrangement I posted yesterday but here are some pictures of the ones in the bouquet πŸ˜‰

I really hope you like this as much as I do – maybe I’ll give that Wedding Bouquet a spin in the future πŸ™‚ I think that’ll look awesome.

Floral Therapy

Hello again and welcome back πŸ™‚

Yes! I finished myΒ Floral Arrangement from the amazing bundleΒ Alluring Florals by Dreaming Tree.

It did take me some time – partly because I was a bit intimidated by it and partly because life happened πŸ˜‰ I’m not good with flowers – I usually leave that to my sister with the green fingers and an amazing eye for arranging flowers, but I want to learn. I’m the kind of “if-you’re-not-good-at-it-get-better”-type of person πŸ˜€

So I took my time and made the arrangement. And yes…..it is therapy. All the inking and shaping – it takes time but is very relaxing and meditative πŸ™‚

And this is how it came out:

For the planter I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Spinach along with patterned paper from Graphic 45s “Floral Shoppe” – I’m crazy about that quote: “The Earth laughs in Flowers” πŸ™‚

For the Fantasy Flowers I used AC Cardstock in Mint and Orchid and inked the edges with VersaMagic Multi-Surface Chalk Ink in Purple Hydrangea.

For the Mum I used AC Cardstock in Cantaloupe, Bubblegum and Spinach and inked all the edges with matching chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme.

The Iris is made from AC Cardstock in Pansy, Cantaloupe and Mint and chalked with VersaMagic Multi-Surface Chalk Ink in “Pretty Petunia” and Chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme in matching colors.

The rose is made from AC Cardstock in Peach, Banana and Spinach and is inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk ink in matching colors.

I couldn’t find the right paper wrapped floral stems, so I made my own from paper wrapped 18 gauge floral stems for sugar flowers and 4 pieces of Wine Twist Tie and then wrapped them in floral tape. Works just fine πŸ™‚

I would love to be able to just arrange the flowers in some kind of wild arrangement but I simply followed Leo’s directions in theΒ tutorial just to be safe πŸ˜€ and added Artificial Baby’s Breath where I liked it to be.

So now that that is finished, I’m moving on to the Gardenias and hope that my idea for them works out – more on that in a later post.

Thanks for joining me today – I really appreciate when you write me a small comment to let me know if you liked what I made or if you have any questions to the projects or just want to say hi ❀

 

Roses are red…..

Violets are….Ehm purple???? πŸ˜€

Yeah I just had make these. Loved them from the moment I saw that new bundle from Dreaming Tree –Β Alluring Florals.

My only problem was getting the right color for the flowers as the one used by Dreaming Tree, isn’t available anymore. Oh well….my violets just aren’t from Africa πŸ˜‰ Let’s call them Danish Violets instead πŸ˜€

The color I decided on is from AC Cardstock and is called Plum. I used “Banana” for the stamens and “Leaf” for the leaves. Then I chalked all the edges with a violet colored chalk from Prima (Ingvild Bolme) and just followed the tutorial that Leo made – very easy πŸ™‚

I wanted something else than the teacup to put the flowers in, so I used the planter from theΒ Thanksgiving Topiary also by Dreaming Tree and made it from AC Cardstock in Cascade and Peach along with patterned paper from Graphic 45s Fairie Dust.

Instead of making the small feet on the planter, I used some metal feet I had in my stash. I really love how this turned out.

I’m in the middle of making the gorgeousΒ Floral Arrangement from the same bundle, so watch out for that in an other post soon.

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you liked what you saw and that you will join me again soon. ❀
