Burlap Crown in Texas Bluebonnets

I got a text from Bella Jewel Photography last month asking if I could put together a crown with neutrals to coordinate with her daughter's burlap wings. I knew it would need lots of texture since it had to stay neutral so I set off to Michael's and started touching everything and comparing textures.  This is what I came up with -

I sketched the crown onto gold paper and then lined it with thick gold glitter and burlap trim. Then I layered on honey golden flowers and a large creamy layered linen flower, and I added hand-cut butterflies from Graphic 45 paper.

She took her girls out into the bluebonnets to get pictures - one of my favorite Texas traditions and here are a couple pictures of the crown being enjoyed by its tiny owner. :)

Sister kisses. So sweet. I love getting to see where my handmade crafts end up and when they make people smile. :) Enjoy!

This is absolutely wonderful, I love it! I love the picture of her wearing it in the field of flowers.
