Just finished this Earth tones mandala purse, totally free handed! I have lots of plans for more mandala projects.
I was inspired by this post by Prunier (which also includes a nifty how-to diagram) to make these cute little arrangements!

This very floral wreath was made from a spring base with little pink flowers, as well… Continue reading Floral Arrangements April 4th (Spring Wreaths!)
