Butterflies and flowers


I hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend. Last weekend I went on a craft retreat and had a whole weekend to play! Unfortunately I seem to have lost my mojo a bit at the moment and really wasn't that productive - but I had a lovely time with friends. I am giving myself a little crafting break to recover some ideas (hopefully) and in the meantime I am trying to have a good ruthless sort out in my study / craft area. 

I have a few projects to post from the weekend though and here is the first. When short of ideas I look to others for inspiration and I am a big fan of Pamellia's work. I had this in mind when I started:


You can see the influence without it being a complete copy I hope! 

I have gesso, texture paste, stencilling, embossing powder, inks, stamping and even some glitter on this. 




I would like to enter the following challenges:


Thanks for looking.

  7. Wow Nikki! I pinned it long before I scrolled down and saw your inspiration (you are so sweet by the way, thank you) ! I LOVE this one! The little sideways tags are such a great bit, and your flower is scrumptious!! Love the doilies, the stencil work, the butterfly, the colours...the entire creation is just a dreamy work of art!! If you ask me, it's you who are the inspiration! Big hugs and Happy Easter!

  16. Mr Mojo hasn't deserted you Nikki, just look at what you have produced, i am sure Pamellia will be so proud of your tag. I know i adore your Tag ;-) xxx

    ps i have taken 5 weeks to clear out my crafting stash and have not done much crafting in the meantime, felt that doing the clear out has made my mojo leave town lol, i do hope it gets back here very soon...

  18. Amazing, amazing, amazing for someone who has lost their mojo! Sounds like the retreat was a lot of fun in spite of mr. mojo not attending. Color me green with envy. I love your colors, your flower and bow. And the perfect foil to all those rusty colors are the sweet pearl and bead sprays. Thank you for giving the shout out to Pamellia: 1. I completely missed that wonderful post 2. she sure is inspiration to so many of us! Hugs!
