As I mentioned the other day, a few friends and I went on a little crafting getaway. Well, as always, we decided to do pillow swaps and today I'm sharing mine.
I didn't know what the final project would be, but I knew with 8 to make... I knew I needed to work on the flowers. So I stamped out 100 flowers and off I went!
While I worked on the flowers, I kept my eye out for some cheap, little square frames for me to mount the flowers in, but didn't really find anything I liked...
follow me on Facebook, you would've seen this picture... This was me working on my pillow swaps. I had to colour so many flowers that I made a little flower "guide map" for me to refer to AND I only coloured the petals showing on that layer. The rest I filled in with the darkest marker of the trio.
I bought 10, took them home and painting the canvas' white!
Each flower was 7 layers and used almost a sheet of Stampin' Dimensionals. once they were assembled I used glue dots to twirl my linen thread behind them and then secured it even further by putting a drop of hot glue on top.
When everything was assembled and done, I couldn't forget about presentation! I wrapped each one in a cellophane bag and added a little tag (created in MDS and punched with the scallop tag topper punch) that read: Let your greatness Bloom! Each one colour coordinated with it's flower!
Have a great week-end!
