I am so excited to be sharing my first post for Cheery Lynn Designs! I have been a big fan of their intricate dies for quite some time, and am beyond thrilled to get to share these with you. This is a layout of my great-grandmother, who was an artist, and who inspired me to start making things with my hands at an early age. I often look around my studio and think how much fun she would have had creating things there.
I matted my picture with the new Horizon Coved Rectangle Mega Doily. Behind the picture, I layered the inner and outer cuts of the Nautical Wheeler Doily. To build the skelaton of my flower cluster, I used the Pair of Ferns and the Mini Flourish One to establish where my flowers would go. I made several large, and more ornate flowers first, and then added smaller ones to fill in.
I am looking forward to sharing with you every Monday inspiring creations from Cheery Lynn! Don't forget, that Cheery Lynn Designs has started a new challenge blog! This week, we would love to see you create a basket (just in time for Easter!)
