Eiffel Flower!

Morning Peeps :)

Oh you know how much I love a good pun and just can't help myself when the opportunity arises!

When the lovely Jane sees this, she'll be overcome with remorse that she hasn't bought me any glue yet. She'll be worried that I have resorted to using string, staples and paperclips to hold my work together. Fear not, no office supplies were harmed in the making of this project. Although it did hurt a bit when I accidentally stapled my thumb whilst checking there were staples housed in the staple pool!


So, yes, this is a little different for me, but I quite like it. And I really enjoyed squirting loads of ink all over bits of paper to make the flowers.

Ooh, I have one of my infamous top tips. Do not let cat sit on top of freshly squirted paper...
