For this weeks Studio L3 challenge, Linda has us making Grunge paper flowers using the instructions found on page 65 of T!m's Compendium of Curiosities.
I don't normally do "cute" Halloween...I'm much more into the macabre, but I chose to use my flower as an embellishment to a paper drawstring basket which I will fill with Halloween candy for my desk at work. The instructions for how to make this cutie can be found on the Club Scrap site here (I'm not sure but you may have to be a member to view the video tutorial....so, if you wanna join, let me know!!). It's very easy to make, and if you can't view the video, i'm happy to send you written instructions. The green paper is from Club Scrap's Wheel & Sprocket kit and the black is from the Expressions kit. The patterned paper is from a DCWV Halloween pack.
My flower is inked with DI's (peeled paint & dusty concord) and embossed with the checkerboard & retro circles texture fades. Leaves were cut with pinking shears. I added the eyeball eraser center & plastic spider just for fun.
Thanks for looking and be sure to take a moment today to say a prayer for all of those touched by the events of September 11, 2001.
