Blowing Bubbles

Blowing Bubbles by Stacy Cohen

Happy Tuesday everyone!  My daughters love to hang out in our backyard and blow bubbles.  There's something so simple yet magical about blowing bubbles, don't you think? 


I cut strips of Lily Bee papers and placed them where I wanted them on the page, then I cut out circles of varying sizes.  I filled the circles with the fun Lily Bee chipboard pieces and topped them with Prima flowers and rhinestones.

I used Shimmerz paint to color the flowers (Pink, Tickle-Me-Turquoise, and Carrot Top):


I saw a fun beading technique on Lolly's fantastic blog, and I decided to give it a try.   I embroidered around the circle and added seed beads as I stitched.   Lolly did it on fabric and felt, and I figured that it would work just as well on paper.


Have a fantastic week!!!
