V&A inspired hanging...in the making


dusty old silk flowers retrieved from the bin!
We have been giving the bathroom a makeover and a vase of dusty old silk
flowers was slung in the bin last night....as Tony quite rigtly said 'we
can buy new ones...'!) Well....when I had the idea to make this V&A inspired
card design this morning, what did I need?! I scurried out to the bin and
thankful, although it is sitting by the roadside, it has not been emptied
as we have had a bank holiday so probably will sit there a few more days.
Oh dear...what else shall I need to retrieve from it?
I pulled all the flowers off the plastic stalks and then unplugged the
yellow centres. I always have a few pots of made up Procion Dyes in the
cupboard and so I used them to add a bit of colour to the flowers. They are
still wet so I will not get the design finished for a while yet and I plan
to add a few beads and sequins too!
These pictures were sent with Picasa, from Google.
