Project - Faux flowers
posted 03/28/10 at 01:26 PM
This was an interesting challenge in Shimmelle's new class for me! I love flowers but when I look back at my layouts I realise I have a very rigid approach to using them: stick and bling! Sooo - I tried to be more adventurous for this challenge. I used some blooms that I didn't love (the colours/ patterns didn't sing to me anymore!) and tacked them lightly to the cardstock; sprayed over them with gloss spray; removed them and while they were still tacky, embossed some of them using Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders, in colours to match my cardstock. I liked the two-tone efffect of the powders, but preferred different textures, so I layered them up with paper and velvet blooms, to make a frame!
