Now, let's get the fun started with Petaloo DT member
Well Helllloooooo there Peeps! It's my day to share the project I created for the Petaloo~Creative Embellishments Blog Hop. I'm very excited because it's like for Mom....and Mom's are the best! My inspiration was a Mother's Day Tea.
I chose some of my favorite flowers from Petaloo then altered the chippies to coordinate.
I gave the Ferns a base coat of white paint the dabbed on a few green inks to get mottled effect. They really help to extend and anchor the flower arrangement.
There are smaller flourishes on top of the wreath that are finished simply with flat white acrylic paint.
I wanted this wreath to look a bit like a grapevine with foliage so I painted the circle in brown and the leaves in various colors of green. This creates a nice frame for the tea pot.
I incorporated many shades of blues in the flower selection along with berries and a bit of burlap for texture.
