I'm So Happy That I Am a....

I love irises.


Along with daisies, they're my favorite flower.

This week's Make It Monday is all about making flowers from leaf dies. The only leaf dies (PTI Leaf Prints) I have don't easily lend themselves to daisies, but I thought they made fine irises.




I cut out a bunch of b's and d's out of watercolor paper, painted them with a combination of gelatos and re-inkers, and rolled them while they were still wet so they dried in a nice cone-like shape. I glued them together, and Wahoo! I have an iris!

VERY impressive ... so different than the normal "round shape" flowers. Would have never thought of it. Well done!
