"Lace Flowers"

I was talking with my friend Angie the other day about making my own flowers. I have made a few paper flowers but I really like lace flowers so decided to have a go. I have tried this before but it was in a hurry so they were not very neat.
This time I got serious and got out my hot glue gun and the lace and got started. There are heaps of tutorials on Youtube on how to make flowers so I used them as an idea.
I have some beautiful big pearl brads that I purchased on ebay as well as some Kasier brads that I have used for the flower centres.

These flowers (1 above and 1 below) I sewed after seeing a tutorial on Youtube. These would have to be the easiest lace flowers to make. I havn't put a brad in these as I thought I would leave them until I know what colour I want on my layout or project.

I love how these ones turned out. I put my own twist on it and put a piece of muslin between every layer of lace and they were wow so I have made a couple of these in different sizes

look at all them for some layouts

Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch #4

Well I wasn't going to do it but I was in the mood to do some layouts so thought I would do one for  the Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch.
This is a photo of Luke when we visited Blue Skies Kindy when Shaun attended in 2009.
They have beautiful trees there for the kids to climb and I couldn't resist in taking some photos of the boys.
I have used the Kaisercraft "Sweet Nothins" collection of papers and some of the Kaisercraft cogs and Kaiser flowers.
I have used lots of bits and pieces from my stash and was pretty happy how it turned out.
