TTIC #28 Part 1



Spoiler Alert!!! If you haven't Breaking Dawn, then you shouldn't read this post!!! So I made this wedding bouquet years ago when I was a floral designer. When I saw Margie's latest challenge, I instantly thought of this bouquet. I don't know if it can count towards the TTIC because it wasn't made for the challenge... but I plan on making something else anyway.

So, for Bella and Edwards Big Day (the one they actually planned for... the couple have shared many other "big days" that they didn't expect!), I thought this bouquet would be perfect for Bella. It's traditional, simple and not overpowering. I think it would work quite well with the theme that Alice created for them. It's made from really beautiful cream and pink hybrid tea roses, brick colored ranuculus, white calla lilies, and a touch of greenery. All silk. The bow is made from cream satin, and brick (or rust) colored organza.

I don't really envision the wedding having a bold color palette. I think that with Edward being so traditional, the colors would be soft. Plus, Alice used roses as part of her scent combination, so I really like the thought of Bella having roses in her bouquet. Plus, if you recall, the vampires decorate their home in very soft colors, so the wedding would probably be the same way.

So, I think that's it! I'm going to try and work on something else for this challenge now. Thanks for the great topic this week Margie!

WoW! That is a gorgeous arrangement!!!
Very pretty, and I agree, I think that the their wedding would be in soft colors too, probably Edward's fave blue ;)
Can't wait to see more!!! :*)
I love roses! I also think that the colors would be simple, I cannot wait for part two.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
