Winner and a Flower Technique

Hey Everyone!

Sorry, I haven't been around as much as I usually am . . . I've been working hard on some projects for CHA. (Pssst. The new Bella Blvd. collections are ADORABLE!!! You'll want to keep your eye out for them! ;) ) I wish I could show you my projects, but alas! I have to keep them "secret" until the end of this month! ;)

Okay, I have one more thing for you! A new technique!!! Glittered Flowers!!!

I learned this from Morag Cutts . . . and it's the perfect way to add some texture and a sugary coating to all those gorgeous flowers that come in the Urban Anthology kits!

Here is what you do:

Choose your flowers. I wanted to go with an elegant feel, so I am going to do white on white.



Gather your paints. I tried this with Texture Magic (found by the Stencilling supplies at the craft store) as well as 3D Paint.
(Morag used a "Snow Writer", but I couldn't find one at my local craft store.)



"Goop" your flower up with your paint. I just did the centers, but it would also look pretty to do just the edges.





While the paint is still wet, sprinkle with your glitter. (I also did some brads.)



Allow to dry thoroughly. (The texture magic dries faster than the 3d paint . . . so you may need to allow the 3d paint to sit overnight)
Add to your project! Beautiful!!!




Thanks for coming by today!
I should be back to my regularly scheduled blogging sometime soon.

Thanks for understanding!
Hugs!
Jana

Another way to get those flowers super glittery is to paint them with stickles...let dry...and then cover with mod podge. Works great everytime and makes them flowers a bit more durable!!!
