With May and Mother’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to create a floral photo display that would be timeless. For this project, I designed a potted “steampunk” flower. I was inspired by the beautiful paper collection “Time is an Illusion” by @Stamperia.
This design came together using a wide range of mixed materials, from metal, to paper, paints, pastes, and recycled items. Cardstock was used for the flower petals, a ®Celebrate Treat Cup Set was used for the pot, a stem from a silk plant – for the flower stem, styrofoam ball for the flower base, and lots of ®Liquitex Gesso and Blended Fibers for texture. It all comes to life with Prima Marketing Inc. and Finnabair ®Rust Effect Paste, Patina Effect Paste, and Opal Magic.
Hardware elements used are from 7Gypsies, Tim Holtz, Prima Marketing Inc., and Bead Landing.
