January 15th Consultant's Choice Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Blog Hop of 2013. Our January Hop is featuring a “Consultants Choice”, so each consultant has a unique project to share with you. I hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle S at My Creations With Michelle

 If you came from Sheri of SHERI SAYS JUST SCRAP IT then you are in the right place!

This time around we created a Quilled Fish Bowl, a more masculine gift with a matching card.  We want to further experiment with this one but the idea of a recycled, non time consuming is not a bad one.  You just can't add water.   Not the easiest to photograph as the flash and light kept catching off the bowl.  Inside if you are able to see clearly is a seascape, lighthouse, fish, star fish & coral with seagulls stamped on the bowl itself.  Remember to leave your comments, good or bad....all are appreciated!

Supplies Used:

Pemberley Paper Pack
Various Cardstock
Kraft Paper
Perfect Day Stamp Set
Chocolate, Slate & White Ink
Quilling Tool
Dimensional Shapes
Art Philosophy Cartridge
