I started with this picture which is from the internet but I don't know which website as someone sent me it. I then choose the backing paper to go with the image...
I think she looks quite blokish... which put me off a little but her dress was so inspiring.
I did get all my lace ribbons out but it just felt like they weren't right despite her dress over flowing with it. I remembered I had a pack full of about a million doyles so used that and like it so much more.
I then got a needle and wound the wire around it to create this springy effect. The beads are some that I've had for a long time and got through a swap and they fitted in perfectly.
Finally this flower... I sat for far too long wondering what to put in this corner, I tried paper flowers, words etc... but then I decided to continue with wire and made this flower. I've never made flowers like this before so it took a lot of attempts but finally with the help of a needle I created this. I'm really pleased with it and it doesn't put me off that the petals are different sizes.
The idea of make my day is to comment that you'd like the postcard... start with make my day, that way I can tell the difference between the person claiming it or just commenting. If a lot of you comment that you'd like one of my items then I'll use a name generator. I will let whoever gets it know on a Monday evening (evening in the UK that is). Remember you can claim for someone else if you want me to send whatever to them...Some other ways that I have used wire... these photos are of ATCs (Artistic Trading Cards)
