Christmas Wreath..........................

When I can see a project planned out to the end in my head, I have to keep going with that and nothing else until it's finished.
So here is the culprit this week........................

Approximately 35 rolled roses in the wreath.
Boy that was time consuming and testing of my patience. But I'm happy with the end result and it's going proudly on the front door soon.
It was soooooo easy though. Very soothing and relaxing doing it too.
The papers were only 1 sided, so I glimmer misted the backs with a red (can't remember the name right now) and the same with the front to get a deep red on the patterned side. The leaves were folded and inked to get a vein like look in them. I just added string pearls for a bit of highlight.
If you do have a go at doing one of these, leave me a link so I can have a sticky beak.
Oh and if you are doing a December Daily or something similar, leave a link for that too, so I can have a look.
Thanks heaps for all the lovely comments.
I love reading them!!
I will be back soon with some other things I've been doing. But first I have to make Tana's dresses that have been sitting there cut and ready to be sewn.
Have a great week!!!
