I love purple, and found it funny that I had these photos on my desk when packing for Retreat, so they had to go. although I did find that I didn't pack much beyond purple ribbon and one piece of purple paper and my glimmer mist and thread. So when it came to working on this layout I was struggling a bit, but then inspiration struck, quilting supplies in the car. So I had packing my stitching bag, I don't really go anywhere with out it. So I was lucky I had my hexagons that with the white fabric from my stash, got me going...I got out the glimmer mists, and started spraying my fabrics, then sat outside enjoying the view stitching my hexagons, to create my large flower, a scrap of fabric was gathered into a pinwheel flower, scrap of wire created my bird nest. I got to use my Handmade stamp (that was included in the exclusive Forever Always Creative Kit for August). Big shot got a workout with the Tim Holtz Ticket Die, added some stamps, some doodle template stitching, and then some pen doodled stitching.
Here are a few close up detail shots for you.
