Now onto my inspiration, I am sharing some handmade embellishments on my latest scrapbook and a few fabric flowers that I tried for the first time, and they came out so well. I cannot wait to use them on an upcoming creation.

That is the cover of my album and the mask here is my handmade embellishment, I painted and glittered it and added some feathers, flowers and ribbon to it.

This is one of the inside pages and I have a glittered metal jacket on this page. The clock is stamped and heat embossed.

This page has an envelope that I made from scratch, the swirls are heat embossed and I used a tiny bride-groom as well.

Fabric flowers - my latest addiction ! And these are super easy to make, just follow these stpes

1. Cut the fabric you want to use in circles
2. start burning the edges with candles, its not really burning, but just curling them up to give a natural look
3. Layer your circles and use beads, fur etc in between to add dimension.

Hope you like my inspiration and join us this month. I cannot wait to see what innovative ideas you all come up with !
