I am feeling so much better today and I believe that the skin under my nose is finally starting to heal...yeah! Since I do feel more human, I decided it would be good to renew my relationship with the elliptical machine again....SO stupid!
Funny that I thought the flu was trying to kill me. Let me not get started on that death machine...
I was able to shuffle myself into the craftroom this weekend and decided that I would have a little play with Ignacio's latest images Funny Christmas Ball I and II.
They began on Silhouette cut rosettes
and then for some idiotic reason I thought learning origami at 4 in the morning wouldn't be taxing at ALL on my brain... Let's not go there either!
But lookie here, I did it! I would recommend a full 8 hours of sleep and perhaps actually finishing one cup of coffee before starting, but if you'd like to make these as well...here's the link.
HINT: They give you instructions on how to fold paper to make the beginning hexagon shape...I have a cutting machine that cut one out for me and then I varied the sizes for small, medium and large.
Each rosette is double sided and layered with an ornament ball.
The foliage and pinecone are made from the TH Tattered Pinecone Sizzix Alterations. Papers are from 7 Gypsies and all colored surfaces are with TH distress paints.
The files are so much fun to play with. Ignacio makes each sheet the with the perfect amount of layering circles and it's up to you how you'd like to decorate them. I think these will be going on some gifts this year.
Thanks EVER so much for visiting me!
Hugs n' Happy Crafting,
