Before I show you my desk, I want to remind everyone to come back tomorrow when I reveal that Super Sekret Project (phrase cloned from my friend Deborah Blake). For those of you who've been following along, you do NOT want to miss what I have to tell you. :-) At least, I hope you don't Hehee
Okay... On with the show!
This is my desk this week. With much encouragement, accountability and determination I've finally completed the centerpiece I wanted to make seven years ago. We have our Ozarks bride and groom and 13 black roses.
If you check out the previous blog post HERE
you will see the supplies. I used 2 blocks of the floral foam and glued them side by side in the clay dish. I glued the tombstone in place and covered everything with Spanish Moss.
Each rose stem had 2 leaf sprigs so I stripped the bottom sprig off, cut the stem down to about 9" and stuck them into the floral foam. I used the remaining leaf sprigs as filler around the base. The two candles are battery operated and will add a nice touch in the evening. A drape of cotton spider web and you have a fitting tribute for any Zombie Apocalypse or Day of the Dead.
Now that I'm in the spirit I hope you'll hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join me as I travel around the world visiting other creative folks.
