Flowers and Foil…

So I have used these dried flowers before, but I’ve not used them in a while – in a year actually, as funnily enough the last time I used them was March ’16.

(They don’t look so pretty close-up but from a regular distance, the looked quite fresh and delicate.)

Sprinkling of Spring Flowers…

So my index nail has kind of recovered, but it’s still a horrendous shape. At least I know it’s growing and I didn’t do much, if any, permanent damage to it. As the weather has been quite sunny lately, and my tulips and daffodils have started to grow in the garden, I decided to crack out my tiny dried flowers for this design. I think they’re really cute and delicate, even though they’re a bit of a pain to work with; bits end up everywhere, some of them crumble to dust, sometimes they don’t lie flush and so on.

It looks a lot prettier in person as the photo didn’t really pick up the glitter, booo.

Autumn Dried Flowers…

So I purchased these dried flowers about a month back but I almost felt daunted to use them. Like ‘How do I really use them?’, ‘How do I make them look good?’ those sort of things going through my head. Also ‘Flowers aren’t appropriate for this time of year!’, I hear you say but remember it’s spring/summer somewhere and flowers can be Autumnal too, as I bought some funky looking orange/red blooms in Stirling at the weekend. (Check out my Instagram or Twitter for a pic!) So here they are the nails, I’m undecided on the result…
