Happy Saturday. I’m posting a little late today but I have a lovely holiday wreath to share with you. I played this morning in the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge and the inspiration site was Wind and Weather. I loved the whole wreath section but was especially inspired by this Romantic Roses Wreath.
I started by creating a circle base for the wreath with two different sizes of circle dies. I punch out lots and lots of pine sprigs and attach all the way around the circle alternating directions as I go.
I added the roses and tucked the holly leaves and pine branches around the roses. I lightly applied touches of liquid applique to the foliage and roses for a soft snowy effect. I finished by adding the bow. Here’s a closer view.
I will add more red elements if I make this wreath again. Although I love the white snow on the foliage I think there could be a little more red for interest.
I hope your weekend is relaxing and enjoyable. Have a great day and thanks for stopping in.
