live life in colour for Creative Expressions DT
well here I am with my make for Creative expressions this week, and this time we have some great flowers to play with.. from hearfelt creations...they can be found here and here...so I decided to try something different for me...you can be the judge of if that paid off..so here is my make this week:
Now onto the flowers...I started with lots of distress paints smooshed onto mat and card swiped through in colours to make lots of coloured pieces then when dried I stamped the flowers in archival black ink. These were then glued to grungepaper and cut out...not sure all the gorgeous painty backgrounds show...but hey ho! Then I set to cracking out my melt pot filled with clear UTEE. This makes the flowers look yummy and helps to hold their shape and keeps them stronger.
I added little washers for centres....the hard part attaching to the block....and one of those...Why am I doing this moments!? Anyway they got on in the end..but overall they are ok but wish I had used these yummy flowers somehow else! The sentiments are from art sayings.
