Autumn Wreath

torsdag 4 oktober 2012

Hi there!
I´ts time for Part 2 of  AnonymeTimeglass, and this time it´s a Free Task. Make what you want.
Since I've been thinking about making a wreath to hang on the inside of the front door but not really got started, I thought that maybe I should take the opportunity now. It may be able to hang there almost up to Christmas. After I looked around on the web for ideas, I wanted to try to make a coffee filter wreath.
Since I had a bit of a hurry, I put the coffee filters after I dyed them into my convection oven so that they would dry faster. So it's a good tip.
I used Distress Ink refillers to dye the coffee filters with, but I could probably have taken a little more color because they faded a bit after they dried. To get a little more color on them I stamped them with a text stamp. After I glued all the flowers on the frame I thought it still needed more autumn color, so I sprayed it with more inks and glimmer mists.
For the red flowers I used kraft glassine and a die from X-cut. I colored it with Alcohol ink and heated in perfect pearl for a shimmery look, in the middle I added a button.
I stamped a Tim Holtz tree stamp on a die cut with a white paper behind, then i cut the tree out by hand and glued it back on place. After that I colored it with Copics and Distress ink, on top I added a layer Crackle Accents. Two leaves were also sprayed with ink and adhered together with a ribbon tied to a bow.
Well there was a lot of text today, thank you for reading this far, and for stopping by!
Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit
