Well, this one was DEFINITELY a first for me.
The idea to do this actually came from a box of junk jewelry.
In it, there was a handmade pin. It was a piece of purple velvet that someone had stamped with a pansy, glued it to a fragment of broken acrylic and surrounded with Dresden scrap. Then they glued a pin to the back.
I'd already stamped Technique Junkies New Release stamp Old Fashioned Roses and embossed with gold powder and begun to watercolor.
After coloring the large rose, I caught sight of that piece and that was all she wrote.
You can see where I pulled the old velvet piece on and put a thick coat of glue over the same piece of acrylic and placed my rose on top (after fitting it to the piece and trimming the rose until I got the same fit). I used clothes pins to hold all edges down until it dried. Then, I glued new Dresden scrap around the edge. I let everything dry overnight. The next day, I coated the top with Glossy Accents and it was done.
Personally, I thought it came out much better than I originally thought. And God knows how rarely THAT happens!

Wow, talk about innovative. No one but you would think to do this. Love the use of the gold on that rose. This is incredibly gorgeous, Carmen! How unusual this is and how creative.ReplyDelete
