Dezinaworld Hues of Blues

June has chosen hues of blues for this week's spot prize challenge at her Dezinaworld blog! After thinking for awhile on what to make, I went with wearable art. I always wear headbands in the warm weather months, so I fancied up one of mine. The flowers are all made with grungepaper, and patterned paper glued on top. A couple are embossed. I also died some sheer ribbon with pigment ink, and with my heat tool shriveled it up, and laced it around the flowers. The tiny flowers are ceramic, that were died with Alcohol ink, and I even tried to die the butterfly that is flying above the one flower! All pieces are wired to the headband with soft copper wire. My 4 year old boy was my model for the pics, and I won't show my hubby! lol Head on over to see all the other blue creations!

This is absolutely gorgeous and just goes to show how creative those die cutters can be.
You're also lucky your little boy is 4 as it won't be long before he won't model for you!!!
