Today Jenny Brannies is Making Memories guest designer. Jenny explained how she created these projects.
I created this project for a teacher gift. I created an accordion flower for the top of the pail. To create this, hand-fold a piece of 1/5” x 12” paper several times. Glue the ends together and then pinch to make a circular flower. Hot glue both the top and the bottom. Secure the center with a circle. Add the other embellishments on pail as shown.
Green ribbon, gems, jump ring, pumice stone distress ink Stampendous, pail: Other
I also created a seasonal 12” x 12” layout. Journaling is an important part of the layouts that I create. This is what my journaling says:
"Being Autistic, we didn't know how you would do sitting on a strange man's lap.
So we waited until you were four to introduce you to Santa.
I was worried. I thought you might cry. Especially because there were so many people around and it was a little over-stimulating for you.
But you went up and sat on Santa's lap like a big boy.
You were quiet at first... Until Santa said the magic word - TOY.
Then you came to life and told him that you wanted a Buzz Lightyear computer and a (hand) mixer for Christmas!
We're so proud of you. And we're sure "Santa" will get you all your heart desires for Christmas this year. - December 4, 2010"
Thanks Jenny for sharing your talents with the rest of us.
