Welcome to the Ann Butler Design ETI Blog Hop. I'm so excited to be part of really talented designers who got to play, like me, with Ann Butler products and ETI amazing resins. This project was so fun to make and I hope you'll be inspired to try it too.
Ann Butler Design ETI Blog Hop Project
Spring is in the air so I have a lot of flowery inspiration. I created a little canvas with flowers to brighten my wall and mood. To create the flowers I used ETI Easy Sculpt Epoxy Modeling Clay. This is an amazing material that is self hardening and can be adhered to anything. Please USE Gloves when handling the material. You mix two equal parts of each material to create the clay. The fun thing is you can add color or pigment to it, or you can paint it when it's dry. I added Ann Butler's Iridescents to the clay and got amazing colors. Then I used a push type flower mold to create my flower shapes.
Here's the annoying part...you have to wait until the clay cures. It take at least 24 hours and for someone like me who has no patience it's hard! But I had no choice so I waited...
Once my flowers cured I could take them out of the mold. They looked amazing! The Iridescents gave each flower a beautiful shimmer and color...perfect for a spring project! I took a 4X4 canvas and painted it with Ann Butler's Iridescents so it won't be so white. I wanted a very light and bright background so The flowers will pop out, but not too boring so I stamped the background with Ann Butler's Background Basics stamps by Clearsnap and Crafter's Limelight Ink. I also painted the leafs green with Ann Butler's Crafter's Limelight and Evergreen Inks and a brush. I arranged all the clay embellishments on the canvas and adhered them with some white glue. Finally I added a little happy quote.
As a final touch I emphasized the lines on the leafs with a black pen and added rhinestones as flower centers and accents. I stamped a border on the outer edges of the canvas and added a little paint to match the flowers paints.
I hoped you liked this little happy project. Please visit all the other talented designers in the hop and leave your comments.
