Flowers, flowers, and more flowers...

Hello hello, April has come and gone, now May is here... Time to bring on the flowers!
I had so much fun working the paper flowers from Eyelet Outlet a while back, I decided to create a couple more projects. 

First up, a wooden picture frame. I brought a $1 wooden frame with Michaels...  covered it with Golden crackle paint, then paint in white, distressed it with black Faber Castell gelato, stenciled...
And decorated the frame with  pearl bling stripsgreen checked paper flowers, and 12mm pewter pearl brads and Memory Box lavish brunch dies.

To create the 3D flowers, I used at least 3 flowers (different sizes),  first I distressed the edges with distressed ink pad in black soot, added the center brad to secure... then I sprayed flowers with perfect pearl mist until the flowers are sufficient soaked, then I shaped until desired.

Supplies:  Pearl bling strips, green checked paper flowers, 12mm pewter pearls brads,
wooden frame, Golden crackle paint, white paint, Faber Castell black gelato, TCW 'Art is' stencil,
Ranger perfect pearl mist and black soot distress ink pad, Prima flowers, Memory Box Lavish Brunch, and silver glitter card stock.

And how about a card?  Here is a simple cardI using this beautiful Pink/Dots paper flowers and clear 12mm stippled brads, and clear 8mm stippled brads.  I distressed the flowers and shaped them with the McGill flower shaped tools.

Supplies:  Pink/Dots paper flowers, 12mm stippled brads, 8mm stippled brads
white Prima leaves, Heidi Swapp color shine Chartreuse, Ranger peeled paint distress, worn lipstick, and picked raspberry ink pad, Cuttlebug paper lace II embossing folder, sentiment from Paper Smooches Chit Chat stamp set. 

Hope you like it and blog you later!  Hugs!
