I know it's still raining and there isn't any sunshine, but I can always live in hope.
I was sitting listening to 'HAPPY' by Pharrell Williams - which just makes me smile and jig along and I started making this little piece. It was going to be a page in my art journal but after adding the flower I realized that it won't shut if I put it in there hahaha. I am going to use it as the front of a Mini Album I think :-)
I recently saw this great Tutorial on how to make paper Dahlias so I had a go. Mine is not as gorgeous as the photos I saw but for a first try it's not too bad.
I think I made it more difficult by making it considerable smaller than shown on the TuT. :-)
I started with a plain yellow backing and stitched a bit of plastic mesh onto it. The kitty was stamped and then I coloured his eyes with Spectrum Noir markers. I dripped some green ink for leaves and attached my Dahlia. The wording was done using a font called ' Austie Bost Kitten Klub ' - free from Fonts101.
