By the Beach in Pink {Inspiration Board}

I must say that I enjoy creating mood/inspiration board very much. I hope you don't get bored with the inspiration theme once more time.

I have many exciting projects I am going to show you in the future but I am not quite ready so this is just an instant project I created this morning and I want to share it with you.

I love collecting pretty pictures from magazines; it can be a fashion, home decor or cooking. 

Today's theme is 'by the beach in pink.' One of my favorite outfit by the beach is colorful floral outfit. I love flowy, soft long dress. I remember in the past when we are going to Puerto Rico each year, I always created a home made necklace and bracelet made out of embroidery threads and beads. I think what I am trying to say is my favorite beach resort look is an elegant hippie chic. You know, lots of colorful bracelets made out of rope, threads and beads.

As you can see I also love sea glass bottles. And of course; sea shells.

Do you see the beaded push pins {last seen here]? I love making those. I bought more buttons yesterday and this afternoon for 25 buttons (small, medium and large sizes) that comes in a small plastic container and is only for USD 1.50 per container at Michaels. In the future I am going to get more vintage frames so I do not have to create a mood/inspiration board in the same frame all the time.

I wanted to share with you that I found how to make black and white picture with a portion of color on it through Picmonkey. The first picture on top left is the original picture, and I made into black and white with some color here and there {top right}. The one on below left I only put color on the flower, the pom pom ribbon and on the ocean while the one on below right I only put color on the flowers. Which one do you like best?

Here is another two pictures that I only put color on the flowers and on bottles {on the left} and on bracelet {on the right}. I think they both look quite lovely!

Thank you so much for looking! Have a great day Everyone!

Coffee Filter Roses {DIY}

I had so much fun making these coffee filter roses for the past few days. I never knew that it was going to be so pretty. I found the tutorial on Pinterest {here}. 

Now my roses never dies and always stay beautiful. The good thing about the coffee filter roses is you can make them in any color you want. I am going to make many more with different colors to see how they will look like. They are also pretty to give as presents to a friend, mother in law, sister, or even your own mother on mother's day. 

I am not going to give you my own tutorial ;  you will see a complete tutorial on a link highlighted above and below. This is where I learned on how to make these pretty coffee filter roses. 

I love photograph flower so much and play around with these coffee filter roses to be photographed was so much fun. You can see that I displayed them with different props and elements.

I love water color and pattern/shape so much that I combined them together to create a display. I wish I had a bigger wall so I can display my water color art with these coffee filter roses but the truth is I do not have a good size wall to create a display I want. But none the less,  I managed creating a mini wall for these pretty roses and my water color art. 

I found this pretty white vase at a thrift store {outdoor} here in Delray, Florida for USD 3.00. When I saw it on the table sat with other stuff that people ignored mostly; I could not resist on having it. I was surprised {with a big smile on my face} when she told me it was only USD 3.00.

For those of you who are interested in making these pretty roses on your own please check Wedding Bee
Her coffee filter roses are beautiful and that is where I got the inspiration to make these pretty roses. 

Good luck Everyone and Happy Wednesday!
