I have recently been making spiral flowers out of felt, but hadn't actually thought of making them from paper! They were a little fiddly but look really effective so I think they were worth it! I have used them with some other handmade flowers and butterflies. Here's the page (click on photo to see it larger):
The butterflies were made using a Fiskars shapeboss as a stencil as well as an embosser, cutting the butterflies out and scoring either side of the body so the wings can 'flap'.
I also added some old watch parts, to give a bit of contrast with all the floral and flutteryness:
While I was creating this page, my daughter was painting. She loves taking a white sheet of paper and covering it in one colour, and today her shade of choice was black! I have no photos to show, but it's very goth looking. I felt like I was flashing forward to her teenage years as I was watching her create her masterpiece!
Tomorrow hubby has the day off, very unusual for him on a bank holiday monday, but I think we're going to have to spend the day doing housework as there's a lot piled up! xx
