Picasso's Flowers in a Vase

Several years ago we encountered Pablo Picasso's Flowers in a Vase at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, and the photo was perfect for another layout inspired by materials in the Dimensional Details workshop.
I had fun creating these embellishment clusters with premade flowers, chipboard pieces, and miscellaneous paper and plastic leaves.

Have you created any dimensional clusters lately?

Perfect indeed :) Lovely!

And to answer your question, no, but I've just ordered a new punch so I can try out a technique to create a dimensional layered flower, so soon I should be able to say 'yes'!

I've not done anything dimensional for ages - your clusters are very pretty.

What gorgeous flowers! Lovely:)

Oh I so love the colors you used, the composition is attractive, and what a lovely job you did with the clustering. When clustering began in scrapbooking, it really made an impact on our layouts didn't it?
Wonderful Melissa!!

What a really effective and striking way to echo the flowers in the picture. It works so well!

..and you know me - I love to cluster things together

I am a big fan of striped papers so this layout really appeals to me. On a side note, this is the first time I've seen Picasso's Flowers in a Vase. I suppose this is a period before he started making art I've never understood?

Love your clusters!

Wow, those clusters were masterfully done - Pablo would approve. I only do elaborate clusters once in a while - but I've learned to do lots and lots of little gatherings whenever I start to put down any embellishment at all.
