A floral wreath

Hello there! Did you have a great Christmas? I do hope so! We had a very relaxed time - and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest. I am back to work today - but not for too long - I finish on the 12th January so have to make the most of the hours I have got left!

I am guesting at the Chocolate baroque DT blog again today and I have chosen to use one of my makes from the TV show for the bold blooms.

The mdf wreath was designed by my lovely friend Jo Rice and bought at one of her workshops. I coloured it mainly using oxides and then stamped and fussy cut the flowers and butterfly. These awere coloured with distress and then I added elements of sparkle using pens and glitter glue. I also cut and coloured the leaves similarly.

Christmas was lots of fun - we enjoyed ourselves on Christmas eve....

It was so very relaxing - I loved it!!!! And I love the result too! Here's a closer look!

I hope you had a similarly relaxing time!

Big hugs
