Greetings! Thanks for taking the time to join us Zisters for our Blog Hop! If you’re here, chances are you came from Fleur’s blog! To keep the Zutter fun rolling, here’s my Spring Zutter Project to share with you:
Here’s my Spring Canvas featuring Owire Flowers and Zutter’s totally versatile Canvas Art Board. This is a visual reminder to myself to continually grow each day!
So here are the steps to creating your own visual reminder for this Spring.
First, apply a layer of gesso to the Art Board. Once it’s dried, I applied chalk to the board to create the skies and field. A layer of peral mist was added to soften the effect.
Next, to create the flowers, I cut out 4 rounds of owire and coiled them using my BIA. To make a slightly bigger flower, cut 5 rounds of wire. In this instance, I used my 1/2″ wires.
Now for the fun part of twisting the wires. Following the pictures to get a better idea of the entire process:
Starting from the 3rd picture: Straighten the first round of wire.
Picture 4: Form a ‘v’ between the first and second round of wire.
Picture 5 and 6: Shape the remaining 2 rounds of wire around the first two petals
Picture 7: A 5 petal flower. You can easily create this too using the above steps and by including another round of wire.
Picture 8: Punch a hole on a piece of round paper and use a rivet to attach the wire flower to the paper. Your completed Owire bloom! You can use ribbons or ric-racs to form the stem for these lovelies.
So there you go, your very own wire blooms to adorn your Art Board with! The rest of the steps were easy. I doodled clouds on scrap bits and added these to the skies. Had a quote from Cosmo Cricket’s patterned paper attached and finally, handcut loads of grass for the field to give the Art Board even more texture and dimension.
So to stand a chance to win some awesome Zutter products, all you’ll have to do is leave me a comment. The winner will be receiving one set EACH of Antique Brass and Antique Silver Hang-it-Alls and the Rivet Hammer & Setter set. So do drop me some love today and I’ll be drawing a winner on March 29 7pm EST. So for Aussie Srcappers, that means 11am 30 March.
Now don’t forget to continue on with you Blog Hop journey and leave my fellow Zisters some love! You’ll be heading off to Pam’s next!
So have fun, don’t stop creating and do take the time to smell the flowers this Spring! For friends Down Under, yup, Autumn is certainly turning out beautiful here!
