    Hi Linda!
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful piece with all of us. Thank you even more for including such detailed photo instructions. Mixed media has always been my favorite form of art to work in and I’ve just recently gotten the grunge board & distressing itch. I’ve been looking at the Vagabond machine for over a year now but wasn’t really sure if I needed it. Now after seeing what you were able to create I am totally inspired and my creative mind is perkilating with ideas. Needless to say I’m definitely going to be asking for the Vagabond machine & flower die for my birthday this April! Thanks again for sharing 🙂

    When I first looked at your project on Tim’s web site, I said these are beautiful. Then I wondered how tedious a job it was to bedazzle the petals which I could ever do. Then reading our instructions, I thought I could do this. Your inspiration is great. Thanks.
