the One Two Three January Challenge is the colour is lemon, the word is appreciate and the technique is folding,
the colour is something that i dont use much of, so thinking of what i wanted in this layout was something to be thought about, i have project life, but haven't done anything with them as yet, but noticed that there were some yellow pieces in my stash, so adding a little black to the back of them , really made them pop. the word appreciate, my mind went wandering with this, what could i appreciate or who, but decided on this orchid, that has won us a champion in our orchid show, and the technique is folding, what could i fold, doilies to make flowers, or maybe washi tape, this could work, so i have used both, I have cut a small doily ( paper one) and folded it and then rejoined it to make a flower, added a button and felt butterfly, then with the washi tape, folded it in half, ( i put strong tape on here ,to hold it all together , i know you dont have to do this, ) and have folded it around starting with a quilling tool to hold it while i fold it over to make it into a flower, like a rose, i also have made a rosette, first punching the border with fiskers punch and then spraying it with dylsions yellow sprays and glueing to lace folded and adding yellow ribbon to look like a prize ribbon.
i have added some paper flowers on top of each other for a raised effect and also the photo. and have used spellbinders impressabilities as a stencil, its really and emboss and deboss, so i went and washed it straight away, i love the swirly effect it gives i have also added some green leaves to break the colour up.
and some swirls.
