Imagination Crafts - Sept Inspiration project - Wall Vase

Hi again.

This is one of my favourite projects Iv'e created for Imagination Crafts. Iv'e used one of the MDF frames and incorporated some painting too for this creation.

The Wall-vase can be used either as a "hanging" vase or standing vase for a table.You could add dried or fresh flowers as I have here. (A small plastic container could be stuck inside for water)   I| used some paint and Crackle Medium to the base and top. One the paint and crackle were dry, I  then added 3 small boxes inside which I made to and stuck them to the base on the right, left and bottom. The top section was then stuck to these boxes on the top.

This created depth so that you could add things inside the frame.

I painted the butterflies and flowers using the canal-art type way of painting.  I will put up a video of this technique in the next few days on here so you can see how I painted these. Have a go yourself as the more you try it the better you get at it. I need a lot more practice as you can see... lol.

Once the butterflies were dry I added some wire for the antennae and then some adhesive gems for the bodies.

I love this project as it could be used for so many things.

Products used were: Lime Stone paint
                                Jet paint
                                Crackle Medium
                                MDF Flower
