White with One June Challenge

June here already, well, its almost half way though, Thanks  white with one, for this awesome challenge and of course,,  its my favourite colour, any sort of blue, i love and really enjoy playing with items that i have bought  in this colour,

last year, i drove to the gold coast for a class, and of course,  there was a pack of blue items some bling, metal roses, and all this this gorgeous colour, of course i had to buy them from  Tracy at my 2 Angels, Tracy  does mostly charms, and they are so lovely , its really  hard to pick  sometimes, but being blue, its easy for me.

Starting with  my white cardstock,  i looked for some lace that i bought at a show , of course, its just the right colour again, funny that. and thought ,which way, up or  sideways, umm, well ,get all the other items on the page then decide.
While sorting out my room for a upcoming market day, at the end of the month,  i came across this blue paper, i cut it into 4   pieces and used both sides,  then i   I  placed Crayola Pip Squeaks washable markers  onto the edge and sprayed  just the edge with water and started to roll it after it had soaked in a bit, ( the rolling effect  i was taught by the lovely Trina McClure)  i have done this technique before, but needed reminding again, so things you learn and maybe you don't like that the first time &  i forget, &  then its nice the next time you try it , The markers and the water, make the colour run into the paper,  you will also notice with pictures below, that i have done this to my flowers, they were a baby blue in colour, which again, i love, but not for this challenge ,so it has to be the right colour.

    so lace in place, papers are dry with the fan, ( brrr hurry and dry ) my foam lace down the middle. now the fun part, with the pens,
it doesnt matter if you dont have a steady hand as  people are not going to see  much of it, when the flower is finished, just a pretty flower.

now the water,

carefully, while wet, crunch them up, this time i used my heat gun, as i was also getting cold from the fan being on in winter, & it  dries much quicker, on the baby flowers i also added the markers, but did not wet them, now we are ready to assemble

isn't this lovely, i have placed 5 on top of each other. and then placed those tiny flowers in the centre to give it extra depth.
now i need something else, im losing my white card stock, what to use, ok, here is my stash is blue cardstock, now, i have some white rub ons, maybe this could work, maybe swirls, nah, must have used them , unable to find, i would not have got rid of them , another must have in my stash. oh well, flowers it is, but then again, i do like that swirl on the corner but its too big, cut it up and make it fit, Thats it. wheres the photo 
Now to add those little blue metal roses, They were in the pack from my 2 angels, i will have to get more of them , they are great . 

assemble the flowers and add some ribbon, that was in  the class from Trina  last week, no i dont need to iron it, it  looks good crinkled. 
dont you love those clear  embellishments, another item from Trinas class, just adds a bit of sparkle.

Of course we have to add a title, so i remember where the photos was taken, These are from Kaiser, 
i was at this years Craft  show in Brisbane, 
So now, Here is my layout.
