Making my Gardenia Rose


 I've wanted to do some You Tube videos that I can share with you all but... oh yes, there is always a BUT.  First of all my biggest concern is my shaky hands... over the past couple of years it has become worse and I do tend to get a little self conscience about it.  My mother lived all her life with shaky hands and it's stand to reason that I have inherited the same problem. Seondly I worried that my inexperience with making the videos would show through and I wouldn't be able to come up to a standard that many of you would expect.  Lastly... my poor health and high pain levels often stop me in my tracks.  It's useless to try and do something like this when I am in bad pain, it would show in more ways than one.
The time has come for me to stop procrastinating and  put aside the above concerns.  I am who I am and all I can do is my very best.
A couple of months back I did a tutorial on making my Gardenia Rose.  This flower is made using the Cheery Lynn Gardenia Strip Die both in Large and Small.  Here is my Gardenia Rose... 




This is the first time I've done a video so up close...  my reason for this is obvious... I wanted you to be able to see exactly how it is done.  I do hope it's of help to someone.  I shall definetly be doing more.   By the way.. the way I have made this flower is using the "Ultimate Rose" technique.  I shall be doing a better video regarding this technique very soon.  I have done one but it's not very good and you cannot see exactly what I am doing.  I have also converted into You Tubes my PENNY FLOWERS shapings and moulding.  They are at present not available to the public but I am thinking about changing that.

I'd be interested to have comments on this Gardenia Rose You Tube.

Hi Angie! I just found your lovely blog by way of Pinterest. You did an excellent job on making this close up video...I would never have guessed it was your first video. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to seeing others. The die you used is one of my favorites.

Hello Angie,

Your video was very informative and well done. I'm going to have to order this die and give them a try. Your flowers are so delicate and realistic looking. I also signed up for your blog today and I'm sure that I will continue to see your creations on Facebook. Hope that you are feeling better and that there are sunnier days ahead.
