A Pocket Full of Posies

Hi Everyone....this is Dawn Mattson from Linnie Blooms design team 2015.  I hope this will bring some warmth to those of you longing for Spring. 

I had SO much fun making this sweet  Pocket full of Posies canvas. 

 I used an 8.5x11 canvas, canvas pennants, pockets and flowers from Linnie Blooms

         The paper is from Bazzill Vintage Lace and the flower centers are Tim Holtz Gumdrops.
 I painted the flowers with Gelatos and while they were wet I pulled the center and twisted. Then I dried them with the heat gun being careful so they would keep their form. The side view shows the how they pop up off the page.
 I used the small Linnie Blooms pocket and colored it with Gelatos and then used a sharpie to "stitch" it.  I used Prima bling to make the V on the pocket.
 I used the mini banner pieces from Linnie Blooms and painted them with Gelatos then stamped the letters with Staz-on ink. I left them loose and only glued them on the top to add to the free flowing look. I used Maya Road twine and another little Prima bling on the point.
 Here's the other side view...OH and I stuffed the pocket with cheesecloth so it would puff up.
 A pocket full of much fun to make.  I hope you all enjoy it.
Thanks so much....~Dawn
