Three dollar vase and flowers
This vase with yellow roses was purchased last week at an antique mall for just $3.00. I just couldn't believe it! I was actually looking for yellow roses, but to get a pretty vase AND some yellow roses!!!!!! (I added the lilies.)
Of course the flowers aren't real, but I used some real ivy for some of the photo.
For the background, I used some dark lavender poster board I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I used a small lavender blanket for the base of the image.
I used many different techniques to get the photo just the way I wanted it.....so I'm not going into detail.
BUT please support some of your local flea markets, thrift stores, antique malls.....you can get some great buys!!!!
