idea-ology hanging..

If you're a blog visitor...you already know that I think anything can be made into a flower...

Have you seen tim's new idea-ology corners??

You got it...I saw flower parts...

Here we have...
Exhibit A...



The base is Maya Road's scallop journaling coaster. I inked it with broken china, then added some vintage photo distress ink over it.

The background was stamped with my studio 490 bingo background stamp, using jet black archival ink. I lightly ran a gold paint dabber around the edge & it's hung with idea-ology link chain.

The center flower is tim's new idea-ology foliage...
so are the leaves...

I stamped the spinner/stem with my gingham background &
jet black archival ink.
Heat set...it's permanent...

Snaps make cool flower centers...

That was fun...

Exhibit B...




Pretty much the same...but a vintage photo background, stamped with my studio 490 polka dot stamp...
the black cardstock is edged again with the gold paint dabber.

Here's a closer shot of the flower...see how 4 corners make a flower?



The moral of today's post...

Look @ the possibilities...
then...

MAKE ART!
