Well when it comes to crafting there are two things that can be found recurring in my designs.... My love of all things beautifully vintage and the fact that I embellish with a passion....
So I thought I'd try something new out on my blog today and pop a tiny little tutorial on here.
Now before I go any further I really want to make one thing very clear... If I can do it so can you!!!! What I do is nothing complicated, nothing that I promise that you cannot try and master yourself. All I do is cut and stick with a few stamps, inks, paints, papers and other kinds of things you will no doubt have in your own own craft stashes thrown in... Really I just play with beautiful products and have masses of fun doing it - and you can do it too...
So do you fancy a quick little tutorial of one of my favourite little way to alter resin flowers right at the moment???? Excuse the photo quality - but I'm holding crafty items in my left hand (I'm right handed) whilst holding my iPad with my right hand propped on my left arm to balance it whilst I take the piccie - hey there's always a way to do everything ;0)
So what you are going to need are these lovely goodies:
And we are going to start with our plain resin flower:
Start by dabbing a little white metallic paint over the petals with stamp pad foam - you can press this paint a little further into the petals...
Repeat the last step - but with just a touch of pink metallic paint applied to the tips of the petals.
Sprinkle a little glitter over the flower whilst the paint is still wet - it will act as the glue for the glitter (I do so love a bit of bling and a chunkier glitter has such a vintage feel to it)
Allow to dry thoroughly and then you have this sweet little vintage rose ready to apply to all your projects - you aren't just limited to cards - what about scrapbooking, altered art, vintage brooches or fascinators, bag charms etc etc etc etc etc - do you get the picture??? So very very useable and versatile :0)
