March Flourishes Beautiful World Tour













February has rushed by and here we are again, in the month of March with yet another worldwide bunch of inspiration through the March Flourishes Beautiful World Tour. This is also one special month, since another talented lady is joining the Flourishes Beautiful World Tour Team. Don't forget to say a special wellcome to Bridget Finlay who will take you to beautiful Northern Ireland each month from now on. And don’t forget! Besides getting to see a lot of inspiration visiting destinations around the globe, You can win a stamp set of your choice simply by commenting on the Beautiful World Tour this month! You won’t know which destination is the chosen blog, so comment by March 31st on each one to have a greater chance to win!!!

If you came from Sasha's blog then you have arrived at the right destination. If not, you can start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes blog so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way!

Our hostess this month is Sasha and she challenged us to create a bookmark. And this is what I came up with:















I was deciding between creating a paper bookmark and creating a metal bookmark. It was sort of a hard decision, since I am a papercrafter by heart :) but still I wanted to make something different and show you maybe another way to use gorgeous Flourishes stamp sets. So I decided for metal bookmark.

The pendants are made from a shrink plastic. I used gorgeous daisy heart from "Hearts & Flowers" set and several single daises cut out of the same image. I colored the centers with "Deep Cadmium" aquarell pencils and aquabrush and shaded with "Naples Yellow" and "Deep Chrome". The petals are colored also with aquarell pencils and aquabrush using two shades of light blue - "Sky Blue" and "Smalt Blue". But you have to be really careful when applying colors to shrink plastic. Less is more, since colors tend to get very intensive when shrunk.

Of course I couldn't resist making a matching card and a matching gift box for the bookmark. And since my dear sister is celebrating her birthday this month I thought the gift set and a good book would be a great present for her.

Thanks for your visit! I hope you enjoyed it here in Slovenia, your next stop on the Flourishes tour around the Globe is Meredith and her beautiful Canada...


Enjoy the rest of the tour! Hugs, Aleksandra
