Time for some celebrating!

Welcome to a very exciting blog hop in Celebration of 10 years of Art from the Heart!


Lots of exciting things happening at Art from the Heart next weekend where the big birthday bash is happening. Want to know more then do click here .

So in Celebration of the upcoming event we are having 5 birthday blog hops.
You should have reached my blog from Gabrielle's and are on the Ranger hop

So here is my project - A Bouquet of flowers in an altered watering can. I figured it had to be something festive enough for a celebration.


And here is a closeup of the flowers...Each is multiple layers of stamped/sprayed gloss paper and sprayed tissue scrunched and heated then finished with a Stickle center. The base is layered with White paint, Crackle, and various stains to create a aged effect.
I used
For the base:
For the Flowers:
Tissue Paper
Brads
The Bow is also colored using Fired Brick Distress ink.



Now before you move on - you will need to collect a letter from me which is
T
This is part of an anagram of a Ranger product
Once you get back to Dys blog please email your answer to Ben by 6pm Sunday September 11.

So after leaving me a comment you need to move on to

Have fun hopping and good luck!
Angela
