Well we had some truly inspirational entries to our travel/postcard challenge this fortnight, so let's see what you can do with our new challenge at Craft-Room challenge this time. Our challenge is 'make your own flowers' Now I did wonder what to do for this challenge until I thought 'My husbandnever buys me flowers!'
Well nowhe won't have to as I have created my own that sit on our dining room table! I hope you like them.
Here is a photo of the items I have used for this project, A vase that was on sale for £3! a bag of pot pourri, some garden sticks,green and black card, and a spellbinders flower die.
here are the flowers cut out and partly put together, I have used a flower on each side of the stick and glued the largest petals together so that you don't see the stick inside!
Here is the fininshed project
A close up of the floers, I have used a large pearl gem at the centre the gems around it to create the flower centre, I have just trimmed thick card stock very thinly and it swirls naturally for the black stalks
A close up of the vase decoration, created with the same flower but I have added a marianne creatables die swirl to it with gems
I will be entering this project into the following challenges
