I suppose you are getting bored by this time, seeing one iris fold creation after the other. But, hey I am having loads of fun with this technique and am discovering new shapes all the time. This is the first circle design I created and has surprisingly been the easiest shape thus far to work work with.
The Pixie Cottage's first ever challenge which is a great sketch got me out of the blocks for this creation and then Basic Grey's colour challenge for this week took the stress out of selecting the colour combo. The red flowers are from felt and the circles behind them are punched circles that I created with one of my EK Success circle punches. The bling is of course represented by the clear jewel stones which has come one of my favourite embellishments.
And its been quite a while since I managed to combine more than 3 challenges with one creation, it seems like lady luck has been on my side this week.
I mentioned in a previous post that Mrs Wagtail has made her nest in an aloe tree in our garden. She has been sitting on two eggs for just over 7 days now and I can't wait to see whether she will manage to hatch the eggs. Do any of you perhaps know how long a wagtail take to hatch their eggs?Just imagine the cute little chickies that could be waiting on us.
I waited till she was away from the nest and had to use a small step ladder to be able to have a good view of the nest from above to be able to take these photos. I was afraid that she might abandon the nest if I came too close, but she is still sitting on the eggs. Sjoe, I'm quite relieved.
