This summer my Aunt and Uncle celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. I was unable to attend the celebration party, but have had an idea floating in my head for some time. Decided to jump off the bridge and start putting it together yesterday. This is the beginning of my Golden Roses
Aren't these just GORGEOUS?!! These were made using TenSecond Studio Metal in Gold Nugget and Pearl, a pointy, refining tool, and some wheels, hummungo tape, design paper from TCP Studio (found at my LSS), PaperArtsy Hot Pick 04, coordinating die and Stazon Gold Metallic Ink. I used Leandra's tutorial on the metal flowers that can be found on her side bar of her blog.
Here is my sad attempt at a more "artsy" photo:
I made these late last night and the lighting is TERRIBLE in my craft area, so I did not take "how I did it" pictures. I PROMISE I will take more step by step pictures on the next go around (hopefully, in the next day or so!!). Unfortunately, I REALLY need to step away from my craft area/computer and spend some quality time cleaning at least one layer off the various surfaces of what used to be my house.
Till then~~Thanks for dropping by and remember to add some creativity into your day!!
