Say it with Flowers

Over at Try it on Tuesday our challenge for the next 2 weeks is Say it with flowers.

We would love to see what your flowers are saying on your projects, my page is celebrating receiving flowers and saying “remember this feeling”. I hope that you are inspired to join our challenge too; it would be lovely to see you there!

I started by applying some Speckled Egg and Antique Linen Distress Ink to the page by stamping the ink pad onto an acrylic block, spritzing with water and pressing the block onto the page. Then I stamped a Beau Collage stamp from Crafter’s Companion using the Antique Linen ink and used a Moroccan stencil by Creative Expressions as a stamp to apply some Speckled Egg ink. I die cut some flowery paper using an Organic Thinlits set from Tim Holtz and arranged them around the corners of the page along with a single hydrangea from a Floral die cut set. They were stuck in place using some Liquitex matte gel medium and when dry, I painted some shadows around these pieces using the Speckled Egg ink. The square flower image was recycled from an advertising postcard; it was edged with a Cold Grey Faber-Castell Big Brush marker and stuck to the page using double-sided tape. To finish, I added the wording “remember this feeling” which was a sticker from Kaisercraft and some mini pearl gems.  

For more inspiration please pop over to Try it on Tuesday and take a look you at the wonderful Say it with flowers creations from my Design Teamies too (grin!).

I love to receive flowers; it always makes me feel happy and loved (grin!).

Of course the way to my hubby’s heart is with cake (double grin!); today he’s enjoying this iced finger filled with cream for his elevenses and as T Stands for Tuesday, I’m sharing his cup of Ceylon tea too and wishing you a very Happy T Day!

Hope that you’re all staying safe and well!

  2. What an elegant and feminine page you created. It is so pretty and fits the theme perfectly. I love your bouquet of flowers, too. They also made me smile.

    I know your husband treats you well, but it seems you have treated him pretty well with this mug of Ceylon tea and cake that looks like it would taste wonderful. Thanks for sharing your great art, your lovely bouquet of flowers, and your husband’s cake and tea with us for T this Tuesday, dear Jo.

  3. I love your floral AJP, Jo! The die cuts and floral die cut work so well with your advertising piece, and I love the watery washes of soft muted colors in the background. Just gorgeous! So happy you could play one more time in our Mostly Neutrals challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge blog!

  4. Gorgeous page Jo. That bouquet is beautiful and is certainly an inspiration. And your husband’s morning snack looks really really good. In fact I want one now with some tea. Too bad I don’t have one here-ha-ha-ha. I bet he enjoyed his treat. I hope you are having a nice start to march and having a nice T day too. Hugs-Erika

  5. What a lovely page Jo- the delicate flower dies, colors are perfect for accompanying your photo and the hydrangea. Gorgeous flower bouquet!

  6. Beautiful! Very classy. I love flowers (being Dutch). In the Netherlands there are flower sellers on every street corner (well, almost) and it is normal to just buy a bouquet when you are going to see someone. My mum buys flowers every week with her weekly shop. I really miss that flower ‘culture’.
    A bun like that would by my hubby’s favorite. I will spoil him when he comes out of hospital.
    Happy T-Day,
    Lisca

  8. Jo, those flowers are beautiful, I had those colours in my wedding bouquet. Ice fingers, delicious, when I first started work my friend and I used to have to collect the cakes on Friday morning for everyone in the office, I always had an iced finger without the cream .
    Have a great week
