**Week 3 Flower Fantasy At Flying Unicorn**

Hey all welcome to our week 3 event on altered projects! Oh boy is this week full of inspiration!!! So much so I don't even know where to start! I will start first with our guests. The Manor House team has blown me away with the projects that they have been doing, this week is no exception! Lets get this party started shall we?!

This project is from the very talented Jeni O'Connor.

This is just a master piece! So very stunning in every way! Heck even stunning seems to be to small of a word! Here is what Jeni has to say about this..

Paper tole, a centuries old craft also known as 3 Dimensional Decoupage. It became popular in France in the 15th century. It's the process of taking identical prints, cutting out it's component parts, shaping and sizing these components, then layering them using neutral cure silicone on the base print to give the finished piece its 3-D effect. The finished image is finally coated with a sealant to protect it.
Long before I became a serious scrapbooker. I would spend hours crafting 3-d images and framing them as keepsakes.
This was a labour of love for my M-I-L, who loves hummingbirds. It's gift for Mother's Day.
I spent many hours cutting and layering each piece.The bird was done using a feathering technique, to give it a life-like appearance.

Next piece of mouth watering inspiration is from the very talented Melinda Thompson..

The texture and colors to this project is just over the top Gorgeous! The Manor House blooms makes this project really sing!! Love the details that Melinda put in on this! 

Now some inspiration from Flying Unicorn! This next piece is from our very own Grand Uni Alda! This project is to Gorgeous for words too!! Lets take a look and you will see!!

Who wouldn't wanna gift like that?! Here is what Alda had to say about her project...

A Barrow of Blooms
From Spring Planting in the Northern Hemisphere to Harvesting in the Southern , a wheel barrow of blooms will bring a smile to anyone. A perfect little way to send off that RAK of Manor House Blooms to a friend, with some tea and chocolate nestled inside. A little note, and hidden in one of the package seeds is a gift card.

Last project before your turned loose to a creative alternating paradise! This project was done by me. I decided to do a box. Here is a few pictures of it..

Its a post-it note box that I gave to my SIL. A place to keep a pen and the packs of post-it notes.

I love Manor house flowers, many different styles and a array of colors to choose from! One of my favorites to use is the "Cutie pies" they are the perfect little touch! I also love the fact when I use them a donation is made for World Vision for the children. Super fun flowers to work with on any project and a wonderful cause to support! Manor House also has other flowers that when you purchase them they go to this cause as well! A awesome company to give back to those in need!

The Manor House Flowers that I used was,“Sprinkles-blue and pink” , “cutie pie- lime”, "Fairy floss- lemon" and “Plain Janes” The Paper is scrap cake “My private Happiness” Collection. 

Ooooh!! Now lets take a peek at the fabo RAK!!! 

All you need to do to get in on this RAK is to create a altered project using flowers and upload it here to this thread. It has to be a new altered project as of May 15 and your project can only be used here. The entries will be done via Random drawing.
