Just reminiscing... of fields of flowers in beautiful San Diego

Last spring on a trip to San Diego we went to the flower gardens in Carlsbad

and saw these beautiful poinsetta's. I had never seen so many kinds in my life, I had a hard time choosing which one I liked the best. But I really think the hot pink ones (second picture down) were the most brilliant and striking! Just thought you might like to see them too!

giant ornaments

{nice helmet... :) he he!}

the contraption they are hanging on is a drywall lift... *we're also working on the basement* it's handy for holding my projects...

this one is way too plain... but I might just leave it like that. I really wish you couldn't see the lines from the paper, but oh well. (not everyone is as perfect as Martha... I tried sanding them like she said... :)

remember thepaper mache project?

Just an update... these are by no means complete... but they are coming along. I'm sortof making it up as I go and they need some help still...

but your creative input would be well appreciated. Here's what I'm thinking... the lines can use some touching up maybe with the help of some glittery puffy paint, some swirls of something, maybe an embelishment of ribbon, pearly stick on something....

keep in mind these will be hung and seen from a distance, so the mummy affect really won't matter all that much. but how can I make them look more tree ornament-y?

please, do share...
