Hibiscus

The Hibiscus has always been my favorite flower, it's so beautiful.  When we went to Hawaii this year I tried to take as many photos of hibiscus that I could, they came in so many beautiful colors it was amazing.


I made this layout using the Lily Bee Handmade papers.  I only had pieces left so I made the background a mix of all the pattern papers.

 
 I created my own Hibiscus flower for the layout by cutting out petals and layering them and finishing it off with twine threaded through a wooden button.


 
I also added some twine and buttons for some extra details to some of the panels.

 
Thanks for stopping by.

Such a great way to use up scraps - your page turned out beautiful :) We went to Hawaii in March and didn't have time to take pictures of the flowers :( Next time I will have to be mindful of that! THanks for the reminder! Have a great weekend <3

Very pretty page - I like the patchwork quilt look of it. I popped over from Sue Althouse's blog when I just happened to click through on your comment. It's always fun to discover new blogs by seeing who your friend's friends are. I got lucky finding your blog - with such pretty work.
