I started by die cutting some greyboard shapes and giving them all a coat of gesso to seal as this stuff really soaks up paint.
Time for the Brusho's which is one of my all time favourite crafting products. I've just sprinkled a couple of colours, spritzed, and the picked up some of the colour on the Vintage Script and stamped away.
So the bases have been painted, and I've covered the tops (Tim Holtz pediments) with the Brusho papers. These paints look amazing, they have such a beautiful shimmer which unfortunately isn't the easiest thing to photograph.
You can also stamp and heat emboss onto them. I've used Merry Magpie, Fly Fly Flowers, and Funny Fungi, and just added a little white pen.There's also a stamp from the Round in Circles plate that I often use in my backgrounds.
I wanted to add some embellishments now, so I painted a sheet of Tyvek with the paints, and cut out some circles. Note to self, take photograph first before cutting out lol and then move heat tool away from the rest of sheet. You can't beat a good action shot!
And these are my flowers, I'm quite pleased with these for a first attempt. The silver you can see is the reverse which I painted in both shades of silver. When they are melted down the colour and shimmer is so concentrated - just beautiful! I shall definitely make more of these.
There's some Tim Holtz words and a paper doll to finish, - and of course I had to add a few sequins. I joined the three together with some small hinges.
And here they are stood up. A huge thank you to Colourcraft, I had such fun playing with the paints and Brusho's.
