Altered bottle with quilled flowers.

Hello Friends... sharing another beautiful project today.... 😍





This is an altered glass bottle, where I have used only few supplies.. 
I have used a glass bottle and cleaned it with rubbing alcohol. Then prepped the bottle covering it with 2 layers of tissue paper using Mod Podge.

I used some cream color jute cord and wrapped it around the bottle using glue. The tissue paper base will hold this on the bottle. 

I then used some quilled flowers and vines with colors that complement the jute cord; glued them in a diagonal arrangement. 

To make the bottle more beautiful, added some copper flat back pearls as well. Finally, completed the work by coating 2 coats of varnish. 

This bottle as itself can be used as a show-piece or as a flower vase... 😊

Foamiran Poinsettias.


My love for making flowers keep growing and love creating them with different materials. 
This is my first project using foamiran and created this beautiful poinsettias..


For the flowers, I used white foamiran sheet and dark green for the leaves . 


The sheets were first cut in shapes of the leaf, as for poinsettia both the flower and leaf have the same shape.
Each piece was then given heat to make it soft and then pressed on the desired mold to give that definition of leaf veins. 
Colored the petals with soft oil pastels to give it more depth and look realistic. 
Each petals were attached to a thin wire and given a caot of mod podge to lock the color.
The petals were arranged and tied into flowers with handmade stamens(made with Thai clay) in the centre.




I have also used some handmade berries made with clay, attached them with some leaves into a spray and  covered with  flocking powder to make them look real. 

The flowers , leaves and berries were then tied up and arranged into a poinsettia plant. 
The plant was fixed to a small vase with POP.
