I had a chance to sit in my studio and just have a play recently. No theme, no restrictions, just letting my imagination roam. I love days like that, don't you?
I had just made up a bunch of layered flowers that were scattered on my desk. The Pewter Screw Top brads are favorites for flower centers. The Creative Impressions flowers are Sheer Blossoms & Leave and Felt Blossoms & Leaves, which makes such an interesting texture.
Both Sheer Blossoms & Leaves and Felt Blossoms & Leaves
come in Small, Medium & Large
and in Tropical, Pastel, Heritage & Bright colors. I mixed sizes, colors, and materials in making these flowers.

I dropped one of these Twine Flowers on a bit of yellow web ribbon and liked what I saw. So cool when you accidentally find color combos that make you smile.
More twine flowers paired with a vintage image from Tim's Paper Dolls. Creative Impressions new buttons make pretty flower centers. I really liked these bright colors contrasted with black & white images.

Lesson learned: Clean up your work space from time to time, but don't clean it too much. Those random bits that you keep in front of you can give you a kickstart for a Random Play Day!
