Mixed Media Flowers

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I was MIA from this space for the holiday, with lots of cooking and family to enjoy. Crazy thing is, I really enjoy making Thanksgiving dinner. (Now that I know how to cook a turkey.) But it wears me out. Yesterday, I was passed out on my couch for the majority of the day with a good book. Not the worst way to recover from a holiday, I must say.

Last week, I was messing around with some mixed media flowers. The papers range from wallpaper to watercolor paper, which I had painted, sprayed, inked, etc. Then I ran them through my Sizzix Big Shot and ended up with these darlings. I really like them!

The blue flowers were made from a marbled paper a friend had sent to me. I inked around the edges for some depth.

Here's the wallpaper version -- I painted and inked these up with some metallic goodies.

The bright pink flowers are on watercolor paper.

The purple are also on watercolor paper -- I am particularly fond of these.

These flowers are also really fun to make from leftover scrapbook paper bits -- but I love how they look with papers that I decorated myself. They are a great way to use up those half-used papers that you have kicking around!
