This week's CCC.....making Tim's fabulous grungepaper flowers. Click on the link above to see Linda's wonderful entry, to read all about the challenge, the AMAZING prize this week (courtesy of Tim and Mario!), and links to those entries already posted.
I used a few different techniques to make my flowers. Some were covered with old dictionary paper, some were inked then stamped, some were inked and embossed and inked again, some were inked, covered with clear embossing powder and heat set, and some were even covered with fabric. And, I confess, a couple were actually made from grungeboard instead of paper.
OK, flowers made....what to do with them? I tried a few ideas, but wanting to include all the flowers I made led me to the conclusion that all the projects I had in mind looked too busy with all those florals.....and yet, I didn't want to exclude any.
So, I wound up doing this:
I covered some floral wire I've had lying around for years, doing nothing but taking up space. Not a lot of space, but space just the same. What did I cover them with? Tim's tissue tape.....fab use for it, I must say. All the flowers have brad centers, and I used the brad's legs to hold the wire in place. I arranged my bouquet in a jar and anchored the wires with a handful of sea glass.
Don't know if this exactly qualifies as a project, but IMO, it makes for a pretty cool centerpiece.
