The center of the flower bud… needs something more. This is what I did.
I went rifling through my storage drawers for that little grab bag of felted balls I know I just saw a few days ago… Ah ha! Found you!
So let’s give this a try… But first, let’s cut that pom in half:
And attach it free motion style. Doesn’t have to be free motion… just whatever floats your boat! An open toe foot would probably work just fine too. I happen to like the #29 Bernina clear free motion foot. Why? Well, it’s clear… (duh), and because the width of the foot also helps keep the pom where I want it, and stabilizes it at the same time.
Now that was a fun little adventure! But it’s still missing some emphasis, although I’m diggin’ the three-dimensional look… that ‘come hither’ and take a closer look at me…
Ah… there you are my little French Lilac Glitter! Come on over and join the party!
SOOOooooo pretty! And Scrumptious too….. just a little dab’l do-ya! And I dabbed it on with a little paintbrush which worked really well. I didn’t have to sprinkle it all on, and then tap it off, (make a bit of a mess), tap it back into container… you get the picture, right?
Come a little closer to my darling flower center…. that’s it!
Ooh! Happy Eyes on pretty sparkles!
Now… whether or not I am done… that is always the question, isn’t it?!!! Will… let… you… know!
Happy creating! EnJOY!
