Somerset Place - Guest Blogger.

Hello Lovely people!

The picture above makes me very happy indeed! It's playful, bright and cheery and is a photo of a little flowery project I was rather occupied with last week.

I don't know if you remember a couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had written an article for the lovely magazine, Artful Blogging.

I was totally thrilled to have been part of this magazine and to get involved with the amazing people at Stampington and company, the people behind the wonderful publication. 

It was a few weeks after I had finished my Artful Blogging post that I was approached to write a guest blog post on the 'Stampington and company' website. I jumped at the chance!
Along with many other publications, a shop, website and studio, Stampington also has a terrific blog called 'Somerset Place'.

It was for Somerset place that I worked on this fun, flowery project and created a little 'how to' blog post for them.

I made my usual step by step picture post that I am ever so fond of. Showing my method to faux flower fabulousness!

Here are a few of the pictures from my tutorial/ guest blog post:

It was a fun project to make. Nothing too complicated and an ideal evening project for a night in front of the television.
Here's another little glimpse at my finished creation:

Felt, woollen and pom pom flowers!!! In bright and bold colours!

A very happy project! the flowers now sit on my chest of drawers looking rather perky and pleased with themselves :-)
Here's a link for those of you that want to check out the blog and the full post over at Somerset Place and maybe give making some fun fake flowers a whirl!!

Until next time, keep crafty!
