I'm back today to share my DT project for ATP Exchange. Our host for this challenge is the lovely Julia and she has challenged us to make our own flowers.
Now my project was originally destined for the bin ! I started it with another project in mind and it didn't go in the direction I wanted so in frustration I threw it aside. Fortunately I didn't damage it and it didn't land in the bin, looking at it again in the daylight I started to like it again !
I started with a jumbo manilla tag and I covered it with torn up pieces of book paper that I'd painted with Heavy Gesso. Then I started to brayer it using Fresco Finish paints, Pansy, Moonlight and a little Eggplant.
I then used a Hair Mousse can lid and dipped it into Snowflake and Little Black Dress Fresco Finish paint to create the circles. I then stamped it with some script using the little script stamp from the Lynne Perella 014 stamp set using black Archival ink.
My flower is made from book paper using the Tim Holtz Jumbo Tattered Flower die, the paper has been painted with Heavy Gesso and then with Amethyst Fresco Finish paint, watering it down for the lighter layers. The centre of the flower is made using a mold and UTEE, I then painted the flower with Pansy and Amethyst Fresco Finish paint. The leaf is also from the Jumbo Tattered Flower die and I've painted it with Hey Pesto Fresco Finish paint.
The sentiment is by Wendy Vecchi from the Approved Art set and it stamped onto a piece of brayered card. I've used the cord from a Pandora bag to tie it together to finish.
I hope you'll get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over the ATP Exchange and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects !
