the paper mixing bowl-may challenge

i was so excited to find this new site last month called the paper mixing bowl and
i was so sad to hear that this challenge site was closing down due to low participants in challenges so this will be the last one. 
so here it is

in this challenge i started off really slowly as i could not find anything in that gorgeous purple colour so i just had to go with the purple flower and keep it at a minimum. i then went over the utensils and saw stitching....quickly looked through my sewing threads and there is was...a dark purple. 
so now all the main ingredients were being used. 
the utensils i used were...mummy will fix it -washi tape and stitching
get messy (gesso on the background)
stamp your feet (stamped ink over gesso)
throw a tantrum
and the measurements weren't exact but werent too far off. 
so here is my candied flowers...

with a close up of the colour thread

even though i found this challenge site too late im glad i got to play along the last 2 times. 
thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.

  3. It seems my previous posts did not 'stick' so I will try again... I love the new mask, it is a perfect way to add texture. I also like the way you use the smaller photos and the little details you add.
