Maggi here today to share with you one of my favorite Alaska summertime sights, the flowers. All that sunlight makes the flowers grow so incredibly big. The blossums are sometimes twice the size of what you see in the lower 48.
Anchorage has the prettiest little log cabin visitor center in the middle of downtown amongst all the tall buildings. The cabin has a sod roof and is surrounded by cascades of hanging baskets lush flower beds. Of course I tried to capture the beauty of all those flowers!
I used Wisteria chippies to mimic the hanging baskets. They are painted and then I dabbed on a bit of Lindy’s mist for that something extra. Then I topped the chippies with Little Birdie flowers.
I love word chippies and Creative Embellishments has a huge selection. I heat embossed the words with Emerald Creek’s Taos Sunset Baked Textureembossing powder.
One the left side I layered burlap and two chippies. The lace chipboard is heat embossed with Dirty Sand and the cross stitch piece is heat embossed with Taos Sunset.
