Real Art Book- TCS Design Team Challenge

Hi everyone,, I am running late today!
I was so busy making bows for my Make N Take on the 12th,
that I forgot to take photos of my project!

We decided to do a challenge for everyone on the DT at The Crafty Scrapper.
Everyone was given the same bag of supplies and asked to create a project.
I am so amazed by what everyone created!!

Here is a look at my project,,
I started with a piece I have had laying around the studio for some time- a fake decorative book.
All the pieces of chipboard that you see surrounding the flower were included in the challenge kit. I knew right away that I wanted to make a flower out of them. I simply bent them in shape, painted white, then sprayed with Ranger Perfect Pearls and Dylusions sprays. I used hot glue to hold everything in place. 

My center flower I picked up at the craft supply. I added the dragonfly, and pearls from the kit as well.

I added in some flowers and a paper doily from my stash.

I sprayed the chipboard with Dylusions and added accents with my white pen.

I love how the title came out- I added a glass slide under one of the words for some dimension.

I have had these flowers hanging around the studio since I bought them at convention I don't know how many years ago! I thought they were perfect for this project!

I painted each flower with Sparkle Modge Podge- who doesn't love that stuff! 
The gold tulle is from my stash as well. 

Be sure to stop by The Crafty Scrapper Blog everyday leading up to our
big Birthday Bash on April 12th- We will be featuring a project from one of our designers every day!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great week!!
