It’s our Special Monthly Challenge time again on Just Magnolia and this month Mina has done a wonderful tutorial for us on Paper Pleating.
As always, Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring our special monthly challenge to the tune of a fab $25 voucher for you to spend in their store, and Heidi even pays the shipping!!
I have used one of the soon to be released Wedding images – isn’t little Tilda just so cute as a flower girl (well that’s what I think she is lol). I am still loving this old Karen Neuberger paper that I rediscovered a week or so ago (pity this is about the last of it). And it goes without saying the yummilicious roses and asters are from Wild Orchid Crafts, blinged up with a spritz of Glimmer Mist (love this stuff – not that you’d notice lol)
I am struggling with trying to get decent photo’s – I ended up taking the card and camera to work with me in the hopes I would catch a ray of sunshine to get a half decent photo. We got the sunshine and I was in a meeting, that’s just the story of my life lol.
The pearl pins are from the Hobby House as are the pearls. I coloured the pins with a Copic marker and was thrilled when I got an almost perfect match to the pearls. There are some gorgeous colour combinations in the pearls – if you haven’t seen them yet you’re missing out big time.
I hope you will give the paper pleating a whirl, I really enjoyed doing this technique and will certainly be using it a lot more.Thanks for stopping by,
