A Tissue Toilet Brush?

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and having a great week.  A quick post again today - where does the time go?

I created a ball of flowers on a stick.  Feeling quite proud of my creation, I exited my crafting room to show hubby and get his thoughts.  He glanced up and without any hesitation declared that it looked like a toilet brush! Oh well, this one might leave your bowl smelling of roses :)

Here is the completed topiary:

The flowers were made of tissue paper using the TH Tattered Flower Garland die.  For a tutorial for creating the flowers and a complete list of supplies to replicate this project, see my post here on the Scrapbooker's Paradise inspiration blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I love reading them and appreciate each one.  I'm afraid I have fallen behind again with visiting, but I have a major catch up session planned for the weekend, so I will be by soon and I'm looking forward to seeing what you have all been up to :)

Two copies of my latest favourite stamp are also sitting on my desk - one is waiting for some love and the other a new home, so I will try to get a project done and posted with it soon.

Your title made me laugh up a sip of my coffee... This is a spectacular piece. It can be very hard to photograph the true beauty. But, I saw the pretty right away. Keep smiling and creating. Love this one!!
I am sure you have inspired many ideas in more heads than just mine!!

Tell your hubby he doesn't know what he's talking about. ;) This is gorgeous and it definitely doesn't look like a toilet brush.
Hugs! xx

A toilet brush? No way. I don't see that at all! What I see is a pretty paper topiary.

DELIGHTFUL topiary and it does NOT look like a toilet brush LOL pretty pot you have painted, too. Thanks for the links, and for explaining how you made this pretty home decor item.

LOL! That sounds like something my other half would say, if it is a toilet brush it's the prettiest one I have ever seen! Those flowers are so pretty and the subtle colour tones are gorgeous
