Here is my project!! I used A LOT of Maya Road flowers - I just altered them a little bit!!
Here is my inspiration, a picture from Southern Living Magazine!!
I actually started with this old award plaque. The award had been removed and what was left was a perfect board for creating my project onto!!
I started with two pages of a Maya Road mini album!!
I painted them with some silver colored metallic paint and some antiquing cream from Deco Art.
Next, I unraveled a couple Maya Road flowers and sprayed them with pink, yellow and blue. The flower petals took the color AMAZINGLY!!
Here they are all colored and cut apart!
I used yellow spray on some gray flowers to make this greeny-gold for the 'moss.'
I glued the petals onto the chipboard with Helmar 450 - they will stay there for a thousand years!!
I created the background on the plaque with a coating of gesso and green paint for the leaves in the window.
Then I created a couple of window panes....
Then I got too serious and forgot to take anymore pictures ... but here is the final project!!
I arranged the sprayed flower petals into the shapes of the flowers from the inspiration picture. Then I had some ribbon with netting from Maya Road that I used inside the flowers to give them a little more texture!!
Thank you SO much for stopping by!! I really hope you like my flower project!!! So, now what? Click on this link and come and join us at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!!
