Rustic Flowers

Last month I made this project for Altered Pages using a wood foundation from Foundations Décor.    
This sweet little flower pot would be sweet desk gift for a coworker, "I am thinking of you" for a friend or "just because"!  

For this project I decided to paint and paper the wood.

Foundations Décor Wood Flowers in Pot
Dixie Belle Chalk Paint Seas Glass and Flamingo
Glitz Laced with Grace Pattern Paper
Acrylic Paint Green & Yellow
Dew Drops
Red Ink
Embossing Powder

The Foundations Décor products are made of high quality wood. 
I used Dixie Belle Chalk Paints Sea Glass and Flamingo. The flower pot is Sea Glass and the flowers are Flamingo. 

 Paint the leaves  & stems with green acrylic paint and the flower centers with yellow acrylic paint.

Once painted, they were set aside to dry. 

Adhere the painted flowers to the wrong side of the pattern paper before cutting paper, let dry.  Do the same with the leaves and strips of paper on the flower pot. 
Paper from the Glitz Laced with Grace Pattern Paper 8x8 pad was used for this project.  
When the glue has dried trim excess paper, then use an emery board, sand paper or craft file to smooth the edges of the paper.
Pictured are the pieces ready to assemble...
Apply red ink to the heart, then heat emboss with red embossing powder. 
 Adhere Dew Drops with to the center of the flowers with glue, then glue the centers to the flowers, let dry. 
Now assemble the flower pot.

 Hope you have been inspired...
