Welcome back to the fourth day of our week long team up with Petaloo! We have a group of our Bella designers that have mixed Petaloo fun flowers, ribbons, and brads into our projects. And the Petaloo designers have been busy mixing Bella's collections and embellishments into their projects. We have loads of projects to share with you and today we are featuring projects by designers Wendy Antenucci and Yohko Takiguchi.
Spring Wreath, by Wendy Antenucci.
I created the base for my wreath a few months ago. Wrapping yarn around the Styrofoam wreath can be very time consuming, but it makes a perfect project when you are riding in a vehicle for a long trip! I knew Bella had created feathers, so I set aside my wreath until all the gorgeous feathers arrived at my doorstep. With a little hot glue my wreath was perfect, but when I saw the flowers I decided to add a few touches to my wreath - wow, the combination of Petaloo flowers and Bella Blvd products really make something to be proud of!
Feathers: Cotton Candy, Carnation, Pickle Juice, Gulf; Ciao Chip Elements: Fun in the Sun
Flower Bouquet, by Wendy Antenucci.
I love hanging cones (mussy tussies) from my fireplace. I have one for Christmas, Valentine's and I decided to make one for Easter/Spring. As I began making my cone, I wasn't pleased with the basic design so instead I took a board which I painted green and laid my cone on it - I loved the effect! With a little hot glue, some grass from my craft store I had a wonderful spring/Easter decor piece. I couldn't help adding in a few of the little chicks, they make everything cuter!
Love and Marriage: Esther Fleming Floral
Jewelry Box, by Wendy Antenucci.
I had seen this box at my local craft store and thought it would be perfect for my little niece. I painted the box white and covered it with the Sophisticate paper (oyster) and then it didn't progress, so I let it sit. When I saw the beautiful colors of the flowers, trims and brads I was inspired to finally finish my box. The feathers are such a great product to work with as they are light and airy yet make a perfect base for projects of any sort.
Sophisticates: Oyster; We're Expecting: Bella Baby Bump; Feathers: White, Oyster
"Spring" card, by Yohko Takiguchi.
Many beautiful flowers bloom in spring. I decided to create a spring card by using Spring Flings & Easter Things collection and blue flowers from Petaloo.
Spring Flings & Easter Things: Borders, Cute Cuts, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Miniatures, Freestyle Sophisticates: Cotton Candy
"First Day", by Yohko Takiguchi.
I have two sons and hadn't used many flowers on my projects. For this project, I chose photos of my son’s entrance ceremony because flowers match this theme. I cut out flowers from patterned paper and combined them with pink flowers from Petaloo to create a cluster.

"Fun Times", by Yohko Takiguchi.
I wanted to create a layout for photos of watching soccer. I decided to use Christmas Wishes collection though they were not photos of Christmas. For the accents, I added a red flower and two brads from Petaloo.
