There I Nailed it !!

Skeleton Leaf tutorials V/S  my scatter tatter results
I love these leaves, after carefully searching for a tutorial, and finding one that looked like the results I wanted thought I would give it a whirl.
This is the wonderful tutorial link 
{you should watch this first, then you will understand:
This is what the tutorial ladies look like. 
And I thank her for sharing.
I love Hydrangeas, so I bought some at Costco. 
They didn't even last one day in the vase, in fact one never did perk up.
 Luckily I took the photo before they wilted.
These were really pretty for less than 12 hours

This one never did perk up {see more about this later}
So this was my starting point for the skeleton leaves. 
A good firm leaf
Boil the water, add the washing soda
Add the leaves and wait and wait and wait

Next time, I am going to try this one

Happy Easter Weekend one and all. What have you tried lately that
left you a little less than feeling successful?

lol maybe they could use some tissue paper to fill in the skeletons. These look tricky. I flop stuff on a regular basis - mostly food, but my family eats it anyway :)

Oh dear...that's one of the better NAILED IT! projects I've seen lately :) lol! Like Dawn mine are mostly food - my family eats it anyway, while complaining about how I'm trying to kill them!
Happy Easter, Pam :)
