WHAT YOU'LL NEED to make your own flowers:
- Canvas that you'd like to add dimension to. Paint the layers that will go behind your dimension before you layer!
- Creative Paperclay®
- Paints. I use Folk Art acrylic craft paints.
- Glue. I use Crafter's Pick : The Ultimate
To create the roses on this piece, I started by rolling out three small balls of Creative Paperclay®.
Paint your base with the lightest color that you will use, and then with each layer of darker color, wipe off the layers to expose some of the lighter color. This will help the dimensions show well. When the paint is dry, start layering!
It was my student's idea to use the chevrons behind the original image she used for her piece! We used a piece of plywood for a canvas, and she drew the anchor onto the piece using a sharpie marker. I really love the way that it all came together.
