Try it on Tuesday - Handmade Flowers

Challenge 10th September - Hand made flowers

Trying a new adventure for the Art MoB, making prayer journals. If they don't sell, then I'll donate them to the children's Christmas fund, but hopefully someone will like them.

First, I traced ( yes, ::gasp:: traced ) the flowers onto the painted cover. Then colored in the flowers with acrylic paint. Next, I traced a couple of the flowers onto a light orangey-yellow card stock and fussy cut them out. After adhering them onto the cover I covered them with stickles and while wet, slightly bent the edges of the petals upward and let them dry curled. I added 3 different size gems, one into the center of each flower.

Helmar - 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, Gemstone Glue
Ranger - Distress Paint, stickles, liquid pearls
Dylusions White Linen
( loving this white spray, it shows up on everything, even on top of yellow! )
Apple Barrel - acrylic paint
Copics - marker ( binding and outlining )
