Hi everyone! I am still not making many posts on my blog but I have been doing some crafting in between soccer games, school functions, swimming lessons and piano with the kids! This is a Welcome sign I created for one of the Cricut Circle Magazine challenges this month. For this challenge we were asked to use one of the May Magazine projects for inspiration to create our own project. I chose to use Aphra Bolyer's welcome sign for inspiration for my project. Her sign was shaped like a gate and had flowers and the word "welcome" on the front of it. My plan originally was to create something very similar to her project, I was just going to use the fence instead of the gate, but the ideas started flowing and I came up with this instead!
I had so much fun creating all of the flowers on my project! Each larger flower was made using 8 - 2" scalloped circles. I inked all of the edges and spritzed with water to make the cardstock easier to manipulate. The circles were stacked then attached together through the center with a brad. One circle at a time was the scrunched up towards the center to create the petals.
