My farewell project was inspired from the tin I altered. I received a lot of comments on the flowers on top, so I decided to do the project based on that.
The supplies I used were my craft mat, a sponge paint brush, paint tray, Bazzill paper flowers (I used red on the original tin, but I am out of red, so I used green in the pictures).
I used the black and white flower pack from Michael's but bought at crop chocolate, Tim Holtz Rick candy crackle paint, Making Memories Gold paint, Tim Holtz old paper ink, Ranger liquid pearls, Making Memories accent pieces.
First thing I do is pull out the flowers I want to use (you need at least 2 flowers here for each completed flower you will make), and ink them up with my ink pad.
Then let them dry.
Then I hold the flowers by one petal, and paint it pretty heavy handed with the Tim Holtz Crackle paint (Rock candy).
This needs a while to dry, at least a few hours or even overnight. I prefer overnight, so I don;t mess with them while they are still tacky.
When they are dry, take each individual flower, and scrunch it up in your hand. Then straighten them back out again.
Now it is time to add the gold accents. A dryer paintbrush works best. you want to randomly go over the flowers with the gold paint, and let them dry. Once dry, stack the flowers, at least 2 on top of each other, and glue them together in the center. My original plan making these was to use Making Memories accent pieces for the centers of all 5 flowers. After assembling the flowers, I discovered that they worked great on the bigger 2 flowers, but for the smaller 3 flowers, I needed something else. I reached for my liquid pearls by Ranger. They made the perfect centers for the flowers.
