I love my Prima flowers, and I'm always looking for fun new ways to use them. Towards that end, I wanted to share some techniques I used to create this layout:
STEP ONE: Take a handful of Prima flowers (any kind, any shape, any size) and spread them across a piece of white cardstock. I think it's important to go off the edge and not just keep them all in the center of the layout.
STEP TWO: Spray with a light color of Adirondack Color Wash. The flowers are very light, so if you spray too close to them, the force of the mister will move them. I recommend that you stand up to spray (getting far enough way so the force of the mister doesn't move them).
STEP FIVE: Spray Red Glimmer Mist (I made my own following this recipe) across the left side.
STEP ONE: Mix up a puddle of gesso and water.
I placed a small pearl at the center of each flower. I also dyed the rhinestones orange with alcohol ink. Originally, they were pink. I like the way the dying creates some uneven color across the rhinestones.
P.S.: Check out my layout from yesterday's post on the Sassafras blog!
