Wow...it's been a while. "Occasional Crafting" was not chosen by chance as the name of this blog. Life's been busy but good. Although I've missed a bunch of sleep, I wasn't about to miss PTI's blog hop. A bunch of things stood out from the inspiration photo - the colors, the patterns, and especially the flowers. I initially incorporated a lot more of the patterns into this layout, but when it was all said and done, most of that got taken off.
The next two shots show the dimension of the flowers and leaves a bit better. Every flower but one has three different layers of dimension and the leaves are popped up at different angles.
