Sweet Lilac Flowers...Anything Goes....

Good morning, and welcome to Thursday and a new Challenge on the Sweet Lilac Blog.

Our new theme is Anything that gives you plenty of scope for ideas....just remember to include some of the gorgeous Sweet Lilac products...

Here is my piece ..

Thanks to all the people who took part in last months Challenge and Congratulations to the winner , who receives a hamper of flowers.

This piece started life as an MDF tag from the MDF Man....if you haven't used his products go and visit his web site..

Coat the surface with glue, and place the tag down onto the paper. I used some Graphic 45 paper.

Now cut it out using a craft knife and a glass mat.

Gently sand the edges.

Now to make some large blue flowers. Take 3 flat flowers.

Put some glue into the middle of one and scrunch it up.

Put some glue into the centre of the next one and add the scrunched flower.

Same again with the third and this is what you make...lovely isn't it?

Next I glued some hessian to the tag

And started to add some flowers and a small glass jar filled with some blue beads.

Then some more flowers and some hat pins.

I cut a tag shape and stamped one of the Clarity word chains.

Made an embellishment using my meltpot.

Added some colour to the tag. Then glued it into place along with some ribbon.


I do hope that you like my tag is a close up of the flowers.

I do love to use these flowers and look forward to seeing all the lovely projects this month...

Do go to the Sweet Lilac blog and have a look at the other work from my fellow D.T. Members.

Right that is all from me. I still need to unpack after the brilliant week I had on France with Barbara and the rest of the Clarity family.

Thanks for looking in and see you soon.
