i started my project by sprinkling color burst on all, yes all the new release flowers that i had received from Eileen….yes all of them!!
i then activated it with wateri did some in cool colours and some in warm
and one in every colour!
now here is what these ones looked like as they lay drying….i wasn’t really sure what i was going to do nextand that is where i somehow stopped taking pictures and go lost in the process but i can tell you my next step was to let the color burst completely dry and then i worked but my next steps were basically shaping my flowers on to stems i created using the new twist and style tool (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/videos/9267 NULL.html).. once that was done I noticed that to me there were missing a little something so I unshaped them and applied a nice layer of Decoart crackle glaze (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/crackles) to each of them and then once they were almost dry I reshaped them again!
and here is what i ended up with!
in the centre of all my flowers I sprinkled a bit of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-thtdg39150 NULL.html)for a little pop of glitter for my flower pocket (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661112/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-flower-pocket)I painted / layered it with different decoart media paints (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/fluid-acrylics) and then once dry coated it with the crackle glaze and then added some corners to it.at the end I decided I wanted them to be a little stiffer so applied a generous layer of DecoArt gloss varnish (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/varnishes)to the entire project
and so here it is all together! I wanted to give my piece the look of an antiqued ceramic collection which is why I gave it all a nice coat of the crackle. the pictures don’t do them justice…I hope I have given you some ideas on what to create using Eileen’s newest release!! for more ideas drop on over to Eileen Hull – Three Dimensional Art (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/)page and see what the rest of her Inspiration Team has come up with!!
