Lazy days

Today  I would like to share some ideas on using non scrapbooking materials in your works.
 may be you are enjoying your cup of tea at the present moment. if you have a tea bag tea, don’t hurry to throw it away. I will tell you how you can recycle it.
Just a little short story to tell you,  when I started scrapbooking 5 years ago, there were non of special materials in my country, so I had to make embellishments myself. first of all there were non of flowers ( and flourishes bling too :) ))
please, have a look at this 


 Сегодня я хотела поделиться с вами некоторыми идеями использования самых простых материалов в качестве украшений для ваших работ. Возможно, в данный момент кто-то из вас наслаждается чашкой чая. тогда не спешите выбрасывать чайные пакетики , потому что , лично я, их собираю , высушиваю, затем комкаю или аккуратно складываю и делаю вот такие вот спиралевидные розочки , как в этой работе.

these beige-pink roses are made of used tea bag. the color will vary on the sort of tea you used ( mine was carcade rose tea), if you prefer black tea- you will get brown shadows. so you have to dry them, then open it and throw away the tea powder or leaves and you will get a rectangle. all you have to do is to transform it into a strip (crumbled if you desire) and make a spiral rose. I added some Gesso on them.


  Цвет ваших цветов будет зависеть от чая. в моем случае это каркаде, и мне нравится этот цвет бордо смшенного с виноградным оттенком. сверху я нанесла сухой кистью акриловый грунт.
Кроме того, я обожаю использовать рваные полоски от старых джинс и нитки , которые при этом выпадают. а также цветы из обрезков льна.

Moreover, I like to use the stripes and the threads from an old jeans.
 and some stripes from an old dress. I made some fabric flowers and added some threads from it. I decorated the Corner Whispy Vine chipboard from 2Crafty,
which I inked with Clearsnap Color Box and misted with Smooch Ginger Ale




 But it is difficult to make your pearl flourish yourself, and there is no need, because FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Blue can not be replaced, because they are just incredible. I’ve cut it into 3 pieces

 and also I added NEW – FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Purple




  also this LO is a part of my Guest DT work for sketch challenge  Keeping the best and here it is the sketch


  эта работа была сделана по скетчу от  Сохраняя лучшее, в качетсве приглашенного дизайнера. Работы по скетчу принимаются до 5 августа.


By the way, this month FWAB designer Kate McCulloch holds Color Challenge. and I’ve made a card using this bright  FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Purple and my tea bag flowers.
 Just a little reminder – you have till midnight , Tuesday 31st July 2012 a chance to use this bright palette


and to win a fantastic pack of Flourish With A Bling goodies perfect to scrap more fabulous layouts or cards!!
so we are waiting for your gorgeous creations.
