I had originally intended the rose to have leaves so I thought I would give you a couple of photos here as an additional idea. It didn't look right on the final vase but I think it would look nice on maybe a flatter project such as a box.
I used the leaf from Ellen Vargo Eclectica 02 and stamped it on the calico with a mixture of Granny Smith and Toad Hall Frescos. I cut some out full size and some I cut a shaving off, following the lines as shown, to make smaller leaves. I coated them in the transparent Powertex and shaped them a little when they were sticky.
I also stamped Cogs in Slate as I had thought they would work well as flower centres. I made some flowers using the large Spiral from Ellen Vargo Eclectica 02 and they turned out fantastic but again I didn't need them. Lots of ideas for future projects though!
I do hope you will hop on over to see me at PaperArtsy and let me know what you thought!
I love this, Lucy. It's so original and unusual and I think the look of the drapery is fantastic and a great idea for a vase. I'd be really happy with it if I'd created it! Beautiful! xxxReplyDelete
I think it looks delightful Lucy, I love the textures you create with powertex, brilliant work xxxReplyDelete
Lucy, I think you did a wonderful job! I know from experience, that Powertex does not always do what we want it to do but this is beautiful, you have managed to give the bottle a wonderful feminine look and I think the rose is beautiful! Anne xxReplyDelete
I saw this beauty over at PA but didn't get a chance to drop by and say how lovely it is. Sorry to have missed so much again lately. I've got a couple of weeks coming up soon where I hope to do some proper catching up.ReplyDelete
It looks gorgeous, Lucy. I love how it turned out, pretty unique!ReplyDelete
