I've been playing with lots of comic book ideas lately and thought up this one, since I've made flowers with fabric before... It's fun and easy and a new take on recycling/upcycling! You will need comics, cloth floral wire and clear drying glue (like Elmer's or Weldbond).
1. Choose your images from comic books, and paint a coat of mod-podge over the area.
3. Glue around petal shape and stick to image. I like to make the wire petals stand up straight to dry correctly.
4. Let dry, and add another coat of mod-podge before assembling.

My guru, Nicole, and I went to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this past weekend, and now I'm extra inspired again! I just bought an unfinished Kromski Minstrel spinning wheel!!!!!!!! I'm going to finish it in mahogany stain, and hopefully can start playing this weekend- (after my guru shows me what the hell I'm doing!) My hubby also just finished making my raised beds for my cotton "plantation", so I'm just full of excitement (and projects to keep me sane this summer!)
