Bloom where you are planted!

by Beth Fiscus | 11 months ago

Good morning all!  Beth from the DCWV Social Media Design Team here with you today.  I made this beautiful piece of wall art to share with you.
 
 
Here are is how I created it.  The papers I used are from DCWV's 12"x18" DIY Project Stack: Large Flowers.  Instead of using the templates included in that stack, I opted to use an SVG file of a large peony flower and cut it on my Silhouette Cameo.  I increased the size to cover most of the 8x10 frame.
 
 

The flower pieces I spritzed with water on both sides and crumpled/shaped them the way I wanted them to look.  Since the paper is double sided, it looks great no matter what side is showing!  Once they were dry, I assembled them using hot glue between the layers.

 
 
To prep the frame, I removed the cardboard backing and the tabs that were holding it in place.  I hot glued the glass into the frame.
 
 
I used E6000 glue to adhere the leaves and flower to the glass frame.

For the final touch, I cut the word "Bloom" out of black vinyl and added it to the bottom of the glass.

 
 

Once again, here is the finished product!

 
 
I hoped you have a wonderfully crafty day!
