Do you like using flowers in your projects? Me well! But sometimes when I am using “ready-made” florals I have the feeling like I was stealing it from the neighbor’s garden. I’d rather make my own, you know like a real gardener, who enjoys from seeding till blooming every moment. So when I have a bit of a time I love creating my own floral embellishments. This time I needed some original home deco’s, well to be precise table decorations.
So what do you think? Would you come to dine by me? If you would like to see how I created my decorations here we go. I had a quiet big piece of canvas from a thinner quality laying around and I thought this time it’s going to be perfect to use it. First I made some smaller pieces out of it and I stamped on it with archival ink (Tim Holtz CMS 123).
Than I colorized my pieces with Lindy’s stamp gang sprays (c’est la vie cerise, wild honeysuckle coral, pop rock purple, yellow rose of Texas and autumn maple crimson).
I was running my canvas pieces through my Big Shot with tattered floral die and assembled my flowers with some buttons. Here are the smaller ones:
And the bigger ones:
I colorized another piece from my canvas with bells of Ireland green and used my wood pattern stencil with distress ink on it (fried burlap).
While this dried as my paper towels were running out I took the paper roll of them and cut it for rings.
I took my wood patterned canvas and covered my rings with them.
Next I wanted to add my flowers for decoration, so on my napkin rings I added some ribbon decoration as leaves and my smaller tattered florals:
And on my bottle neck I added two big tattered florals (one at the front and one at the back) and by the sides I added some ribbons as leaf decoration.
And so I felt like a real gardener creating my own flowers.
Thanks for following my process. I am sharing my flower decorated rings with Craft hoarders anonymous challenge #15. Why don’t you jump over and get some flourish inspiration?
