Spiral Flower Mixed Media

March 1, 2014 No Comments

Sometimes I have this creative line up in my head.  This week has been one of those times.  I’ve had a list of things that I want to try and create and can’t wait to finish with one before I move on to the next.

So, I’ve had this idea to make a large, lush flower using the new Spiral Flower die (#129379).  I love Peonies and Roses – old fashioned cottage roses.  They’re both so full and gorgeous.  Today was the day to take a stab at creating something like them with the Spiral Flower die.  Frankly I can’t wait for Spring.  I’m hoping that my tree peony made it through this harsh winter.  It’s one of the first things in my year to bloom and one I make a point of watching for each year.

 

Spiral Flower Mixed Media

To create my flower, I used several of the Spiral Flower die cuts to create this flower.  They were assembled using hot glue.  Then the flower was finished with Dazzling Details.  I squirted small amounts out on my fingertip and lightly brushed it along the edges of random petals.  I wanted a little glitz but nothing over the top.

The flower is adhered to a canvas that I spritzed with a solution of Crushed Curry ink refill and alcohol.  I spritzed and rotated the canvas to get some pooling and drips of ink for more visual texture.  Once it was pretty much what I wanted, I used my heat tool to finish drying the ink.

Then, I used the small distressed dots image from Happy Watercolor.  This stamp was inked with Versamark and then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.  Next, I took the Versamark pad and stroked it at several places around the edges of the canvas and again heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.  After adhering my lush flower to the canvas, I sprinkled on some sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim.

I can just see a grouping of these flower canvases on a wall.

Now, here’s a quick video for those of you who have not yet used the Spiral Flower die.
