Wholly Unique

When someone hands you Eric Carle's 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' fabric, some colourful star buttons, a handmade hand stamped disc, vintage lace, and a vintage key....what would you make?

A Challenge is the first thing that I thought; next ....totally out of my comfort zone....then add in the fact this is for a super talented friend with bright pink hair, a Vaudeville themed wedding, a illustrator of children's books, who is marrying the most splendid metal sculptor in the whole of Britain....the nerves start to kick in.

This bouquet took more time and care than my own VM bouquet!! I was feeling the pressure! But the minute I had an idea in my head, I was on a roll. 
I have to admit I went away from what Miss Nats wanted....she originally wanted it made from the fabric roses...but with a fabric as busy as this, you where struggling to see any detail of the vintage items that was going into it, which I thought was a shame.

So for the first time, I redirected the brides vision....sent the email with the photos and prayed that she understood what I had done and why.....I waited......

Her reply was this...

Emma Bakker you wonderful wonderful lady!!!It is stunning! I am blown away!!!!Thank you thank you thank you!!!! I'm so excited! did i mention that I love you and you are wonderful!!??  its be honest, i don't really know what my vision was, but i know i love it! "

So I think it is safe to say she likes it....and I can breath a sigh of relief! 
Thank you Miss Nats for pushing my creativity, for being wholly unique and a wonderful friend.

I can enjoy the wedding next week with a little bit of pride to have been a part of this amazing couples day.

Wishing all the Luck, Love & Happiness to Nats & Luke !
