B.D. - Before Dies

Good Sunday Morning!

I wanted to show you a little art piece I did before I used dies in every project.  

This one started out as a coaster from a restaurant.  The design is based on a project that is in one of Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 books.  She is an amazing artist and designer.

If I were doing this now, I would be able to cut the flower, the stem and the leaves from a die - but back then I didn't have that luxury.

But what I want you to know is this.  Whatever tools you have - make art.  Just jump in and make some.  It is good for you!

Tomorrow I will be showing you a project using a brand new die that I got this month.  I hope to see you then.

Hi Susie,
this is totally ADORABLE! And I don't think it would have been any nicer or more beautiful if you used die cuts for the flowers (ok.. maybe it would have been easier for you to create it ;-) .. but it can never be any more good looking than this!) :-))
Thanks for sharing! I so adore your talent :)
