It’s been a while since I’ve made one of these! I’ve missed it. But I pre-painted up several of them so plan on seeing some more here soon!
This one used some K & Co. papers I fell in love with. They match my living room, lol. Or at least two of the colors in my living room. anyways, I took some felt flowers from Creative Impressions and spritz them with Glimmer Mist and then added Making Memories crystal brads to the center. But wait! I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to attach them. Tracy, our DT leader had mentioned that the 450 wasn’t suitable for use with flat-backed crystals because it reacted with the backs of them. Well, enough of the glue went past the prongs and hit the crystal backs. And reacted. And it is actually a really cool look, lol! It’s no longer got that faceted crystal look, but more of a crackled…I don’t know, but I like it.
I also used the Helmar 450 to attach this metallic ribbon from Michael’s to the rooflines. It’s a slippery ribbon, so the quick grab on the 450 made this soooo much easier.
And, of course, Mod Podge and acrylic paint from Plaid round out the supply list.
