Art Time!

I love it when a good art plan comes together. I designed the new Heart Flowers with this vision in mind. And I absolutely "heart" the way they turned out! Not only that, you can make small, medium, and large flower hearts. The small is just 2" tall, and oh so cute cute cute!

I began by wrapping my spools. I did each one different! The music spool started with a layer of acrylic paint. Then just wrap and glue! I used vintage music sheet, a silver tinsel stem, and red twine.

My favorite is the Tinsel Stem spool. So easy since the stems are wired. The red or gold would look adorable too!

Next I worked on my stems. I started with a layer of white acrylic paint.

I tore up bits of music sheet and washi tape, and glued them on.

Once dry, I trimmed the excess with scissors, and filed any remaining bits with my file set. I LOVE my file set!

I added some paint and doodling to my stems, and then finished off the hearts with the Vintage Music Collage Sheet. I trimmed out my hearts and then lined them with glitter. Simply add a line of glue around the edges, sprinkle with glitter, and then tap off the excess. I added a little heart bling to each flower. There are SO many different directions you could go with these sweet flowers. They would make amazing little gifts! It may be only 7 degrees here, but I can still "grow" some flowers!!!
