Well let's get on with her special present.
I started out with this simple kit from oh my crafts . I do believe there discontinued though.
I painted 15 flowers, I used 3 different colors of purple in the folk art paints (dark, medium, light). I had to give each one 4 coats. I glued some large white flat back pearls to the centers of my flowers. while my paint was drying and in between coats I worked on my vase, I took off the handle it had on it, it just untied. I then found some purple paper which had some cartoon character on it and I traced the insert kinda sorta. Once i traced and cut it out it need a little more trimming so it fit just right. After I got that done I went and painted the flowers some more. I stuffed the vase with some tissue paper so that way when I put the Styrofoam piece in i cant adjust it accordingly. After everything was dried and I got it all put together, I stuck them into the Styrofoam at different sizes. Covering them up with the shredded paper. Using Ashlyns alphabet I cut the word MOM out at 3 inches. Light purple paper was used. Gluing them down so they kinda scroll around the vase, adding 3 dark purple gems to one side of each letter. For the top and bottom of the vase I used the Offray Majesty Lace. This is some pretty lace to work with.
A pretty easy project, just took about 2 days to complete because of all the drying.
Let's get to the pictures.
Hope you love it as much as my mom did.
Till next time. Happy Creating.
