BLOOM Layout and some news!
Ever get inspired by pop tops? No? Really? I am the only crazy person who thinks yellow pop tops should be scrapbooked?
I had several of these larger sized cans to work with. This image doesn't show the yellow tops, but let me just tell you, they rock! I also wanted MORE metal since I was cutting up the can. Have yet another metal project in mind...and the twisted tea is not bad at all either! ;-)
The tops are there on the top right hand corner of my page and inspired the yellow paper with the contrasting purple.
In fact, used some of the rest of the soda can to make that flower as well. Long story short on the soda can, I was supposed to use one for the challenge I posted last Saturday, but ended up making a crazy winged clock instead.
The leaves are embossed aluminum tape and dyed with alcohol inks.
The flower was also cut with the Tim Holtz tattered die, added plaster in a pattern from a stencil and more alcohol ink. Of course a rusty bottle cap center....
Love up-cycling something New and Improved. Of course, add alcohol inks and it fixes anything! ;-)
Fits right in with my NEW GIG!
I'm off to hang with the PEEPS at LESSology as a Design Team Member!
You can read about it HERE. I cannot wait to show you my first project...which also involves metal...oh boy. Seems to be a theme here! Well, it's also up-cycled, but I suppose you might have guessed that.
oh and that crazy flower on my page? Was a Mother's Day present! I guess they have taken to dying these orchids, but wow, that is a freaky cool color! Hope she liked it!
