Adriana shows us how she arranges a Collection of flowers


Adriana loves flowers & shows us how to arrange a collection of them on this gorgeous hanging & on the LO.

Adriana explains her projects:
'Since May is the month that we celebrate “Mother’s Day”, I thought it would be a great opportunity to pay tribute to our wonderful Mother’s & Mother-in-Law’s.

So I have made two projects.

First is a TRIO MINI CANVAS hanging. These canvases measure each 10 cm x 10 cm, and they look quite lovely attached together with ribbon and hanging on a wall.
I used the word LOVE & Forever, because a Mother’s Love is always treasured forever.  Using the lovely image from the Elements paper collection and the gorgeous fabric flowers available from Meg’s Garden.

First I painted the canvases with slate colour paint, then decorated with papers from Meg’s garden – Mini Forget me Not collection.Then decorated with all the beautiful blooms available from Meg’s Garden website.

My second project is a tribute to my Mother-in-law. I just loved this photo of her. I think it was taken around the late 40’s, at the end of the World War II.

To all the Mothers and Mother-in-laws, wishing you all a Happy Mother’s Day.

Two really gorgeous projects to celebrate Mothers - each of the projects has very similar products but yet they end up so different.

They are so beautiful Adriana - love the way you have arranged the flowers. The different blues & creams on the hanging are divine - the laces, jewel pins are such elegant elements - the tassels a fabulous finishing touch. The hanging has so many different colours in it;  from the papers to each of the flowers, tassels & laces & they blend so well.

The little touch of garnet on the LO is just so special & just picks up the entire LO. The German scrap border & the lace doilies are really fantastic - the different flowers work so well - the LO is a superb tribute to your beautiful mother-in-law - what a smile!

Well done Adriana - just beautiful

Ladies: we have had 2 Layouts this week using the same paper collection.  How amazingly different are they?
