WOYWW # 149, Paper Flowers

Back at the Weekly Workdesk Wander, courtesy of our most excellent hostess, Julia Dunnit at The Stamping Ground. 
   These were the Tim Dies I bought recently, having admired what people were doing with them. So I've spent a few days cutting out loads of flowers in different papers.
I've have been putting some together for a couple of Wedding cards in Black and White that I have to make.I used black and white pearlescent paper, along with some glittered vellum for a bit of sparkle.

Here I've layered them all up, and also added some seed beads in Black or White to the centres. So that's my desk this week.

                   Roof Update:
 We now have a roof over our bedroom, lol, just in time for the glorious (!) Bank Holiday weather we had,and we have someone coming into plaster the room next weekend. The kitchen roof is coming off now, as well as taking down the chimney stack at the end of the kitchen. We have an old Victorian house with the galley- style kitchen:

According to the guy you can see taking it down, the only thing keeping it there was gravity!!!
 Hope you all had a lovely Easter, and have a great Wednesday.

Love those flowers, Shaz, especially the ones from yesterday. However, your roof saga is sending waves of fear through us. We really need work done on our roof, but it all sound very scary. How is your craft room holding up against all the dust and disruption? Have they done that brickwork yet? Have a good week, and speak to you soon. xx Maggie #2

Don't envy you all the roof work! No doubt it will be great when finished but it's not the kind of mess I like!
Great flowers and love the tiny ones in your previous post.

All these flowers... they are so lovely. I think they look brilliant on a wedding card in these colours. Look like you have a big renovation on your house. Good luck with it. Have a happy and crafty week. xFranka #11

The flowers are so pretty...love them! A roof over the bedroom is probably a good thing I would imagine! Happy WOYWW #47

Wait, wouldn't gravity be the thing to bring the chimney crashing to the ground? Well, goodbye to it, anyway! I love the flowers. I have admired that die too but so far have lived without it. Doing the flowers in pearlescent black and white adds elegance to them.

Those flowers look amazing and so different, gosh you have been busy!

I have enjoyed looking at your space
Have a good week and happy hopping!

I love those tattered florals too, they are very versatile. Looks like you got the roof on just intime for the April showers. Have a great week. If I pile my desk up much more I will need scaffolding too he he

Hi Shaz,

The flowers look GREAT. I just bought a layered flower die but haven't used it yet.

The new roof looks great. I love old houses; they have so much character.


Morti said...

Love the flowers, definitely inspirational! Good luck with the new roof, and I'm sorry if I made you buy new stamps with my plug for Smeared Ink (ROFL)!

Thanks for stopping by!

Super flowers! Take care, it's Thursday now so I'm late but I can never get through the list in one go! Love Zo xx 75

Hi Shaz, love your flowers and also the punched ones in your previous post ... they are so pretty around that baby picture. Sounds like your roof is being renewed just in the nick of time. Hope it's all finished in super quick time for you. Elizabeth x #26

RosC said...

Hi Shaz, so good to have a roof! I would be feeling distinctly at a disadvantage without one. There's something sad about taking down a chimney. I suppose that's a response from all the ruined cottages around the Australian countryside - the chimney is always left standing, last to go. Somehow it's the heart of the home. Silly?
Your profusion of flowers is fabulous. I'm inspired.
Yours as ever,
Ros. #90
