Hello to all of my old and new followers!
I am very excited and nervous to show you what I have been up to lately!
I was asked by Hilde from Crafting with Dragonflies Challenge Blog to be a Guest Designer for the new Challenge - Handmade Flowers
I am always happy to do a Guest Design Team Spot, it is exciting to join another team even for just a little while! he he
I have been wanting to try Tyvek flowers for a while and also Mixed Media Work, so this was the perfect opportunity to get very creative.
Here is the finished product
I wish I had of taken more photos of the Flower creation but here is what I have done:
I used the Tim Holtz Large Tattered Florals Die to cut the Tyvek Paper
Then Brushed and sponged on Reinkers
Glued them together then Heated them with a heat gun to make the Tyvek scrunch up
Then lastly added a flatback to the centres.
This is what I did for my Background:
I used a canvas board
Using Gel Medium I glued on various torn Papers and Sheet Music
I brushed and sponged on Reinkers randomly
Then I used a Face stencil by Jane Davenport with black ink
Jane has beautiful Stencils and they are available HERE
I painted in the face area with pale pink and in front of the face with white
Then all other details were made with my Promarkers and White Paint Pen
Lastly I added my Flowers with some Marianne Creatable Leaf flourishes
And the Hope Sentiment
I hope you all enjoy my Mixed Media Work
And drop by Crafting with Dragonflies to see the other wonderful flowers and creations the DT Ladies have made.
Hugs Julie xox
