Alcohol Inked Paper Rose

I have to say that I think I am addicted to making paper roses. Recently I had my very first UStream Live class where I taught how to create this Alcohol Inked Paper Rose. It was odd  for my first class. I'm not used to being live on webcam and I think it was a bit awkward and hard to get used to for my first time. I think that I need to get a better camera or perhaps rearrange where I have my webcam to have a better view of things. My husband created a stand for my webcam and set it up where we thought it would work well, and I guess it did ok for my first video. I just wish I didn't feel so put off by it all. lol. You can view the class HERE....and feel free to laugh. LOL. It is in 2 parts... kept having phone calls and things that interupted me. I've now officially learned to NOT have the phone in the room with me, and to let EVERYONE know that I'm teaching a class prior to going live! LOL.

I am considering creating these flowers and selling them in my shop. They would be an AWESOME addition to scrapbook pages, and other art creations. Would anyone be interested in these? I was thinking a set of 3. I could create a large (that would be the one shown), medium, and small. Of course each flower would be uniquely different but the same in concept. This large rose shown is the size of my palm so it is a good size and the back is flat for easy attachment. If this would interest anyone please let me know! Thanks so very much! I hope to get more creations up soon, we've been going through a rough patch here at home with a lot of personal things going on so I haven't been able to create like I would like. *sighs* I have however been working on a new baby blanket that I will be selling in the shop very soon. It's a little over half finished so far and I work on it every day so I hope to complete it fairly soon.

I had a 50 fan giveaway this week for my shop's page on facebook. Now my goal is to reach 100 fans and of course I will be having a giveaway as soon as the page reaches 100! If you haven't already you can visit by clicking HERE. Anyone is eligible to win and all you have to do is 'like' the page. =) I'll have more details on the giveaway in the coming days so please stay tuned for that!

I hope everyone is enjoying spring FINALLY being here, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I love the paper roses & wow - someone sure picked out GREAT colors for your alcohol ink. Ha. :) Really cool idea & would be great in scrapbooking & such. I think you should sell them as a set on your shop. Really neat idea!
