When Prima came out with their gorgeous "Magnolias" stencil I knew it would become part of my collection! On magnolia trees, each flower is surrounded with a circle of leaves under it....Prima's design is perfect!
Starting with red textured cardstock, I stenciled the entire 12x12 layout, adding 'Sunshine Yellow' microbeads to the flower centers.
Since this is our state flower, I cut out an outline of Louisiana. Placement of a single magnolia surrounded by the tree's thick, shiny leaves was fitting. I found a perfect magnolia leaf photo online taken by LSU ag (Louisiana State University Agriculture).
The white mulberry magnolias from Wild Orchid Crafts are so beautiful.
Thanks for taking time to visit.....and have a great Christmas week! Lisa : )
