Challenge 43 - Handmade Flower Power!

Hi all! Ria Mojica here for you today.  So very sorry for this delayed post...been feeling a bit under the weather the past few days. But today I have a fun challenge for you...handmade flowers! Create any project that has one or more flowers that you have made yourself. There are plenty of tutorials available on the web, if you still haven't tried this.

I have to say that everybody outdid themselves for this challenge! Great job everyone!

I made a basic rose using the Red Fleur de Lis paper and cut out leaves using my Slice machine from the light green dots paper.

Made a tag using the Alice image from the Wonderland cd and added some hand made flowers made out of music score page.

Used Sarah's spray inks to create the background & used scalloped circle punches to create the flower.

Flowers punched with added pearl detail.These were then stuck onto a teapot shaped card covered in teal spot paper from the Wonderland cd. Sentiment computer generated.

Image and DP downloaded from the new Oz collection. I added stickles to Glenda's wings for a little sparkle.The flowers were handmade from ribbon and accented with pearls. The sentiment was from my stash.

Used strips of scrunched up lengths of Wonderland papers, printed onto very thin tissue like paper to make a wee bouquet.

I decided to finish my journal!  I used Orange ink-a-balls and a primer to cover the canvas front. I then sprayed Sarah's Teal Mist and let it drip dry.  I covered the whole thing in silkscreen medium and then white acrylic paint.  I let it dry, then trowled on some more paint and oil pastels to draw the sun.  Let it dry, added more paint and stamps (you can almost see Sarah's faces stamps....)...more paint and more medium. AFter it dried i added the lollipop flowers by using some wonderland papers cut into circles and scrunched and layered. Stamped on them, glued them and added a button. The stems are made from hemp rope inked green with some yellow hessian.

I hope you have enough inspiration to join us for this fun little challenge this week!!! You have until 26th June to join in and the winner will be announced on 1st July!
