This is NOT what I set out to do...
Rick asked if grungepaper tears...
So as I showed him (lucky guy got a private demo!)...
I tore a circle....almost...
Hmmm...looked to me like the beginning of a flower...
then I tore another circle...
and a third smaller...
See where this is going?
and here's the result...
Grab these supplies to make this quick flower...
*inkssentials non stick craft sheet
* distress inks...broken china, brushed corduroy & peeled paint
*inkssentials blending tool, with blending foam
* jet black archival ink for stamping
*black glaze pen, Sakura
*vintage button or 2
These studio 490 stamps...
*screen background from the "art rules" set
*gingham background from the "natures art" set
*bingo background from the "life & art" set
*leaves from the flower on "all about art" set
*stem from "funky flower art" set
* lightly trace 3 concentric circles on the grungepaper, with a pencil.
trace 3 circles from punches...
or I used a glass, a vase & a spice jar...
VERY technical! not!!
*make a tiny slit & start tearing the grungepaper, following the circle outline...remember...art doesn't have to be perfect!
these circles won't be!
*use the blending tool & ink the front & backs of the smallest & large with broken china
*the middle size with brushed corduroy.
*using jet black archival ink...
stamp the front & back of the smallest with the bingo background stamp
stamp the middle with the gingham
stamp the largest with the screen stamp
*form the flower by rolling the edges...
MAGICALLY..they stay in place!
*assemble the flower, using scraps of grungeboard between the layers to add dimension
* stack 2 buttons for the center & add the snap
* stamp the stem & the leaves on grungepaper scraps using the jet black archival, then ink the front & back with peeled paint, using the blending tool.
* using jet black archival, stamp the leaves with the screen stamp and the back of the stem with the screen stamp also.
* glue the stem to the back of the flower & glue the leaves in place.
* curl the leaves & the stem
*add glaze pen dots on the button & around the flower center
* the snap is the finishing touch!
Like I said...flower fate!
and just another way to...
