Hello bloggy friends!! If you are visiting from the awesome Julia's blog for WOYWW you are in the right place! This week, I am showing my work desk and what I made too. First, here is my desk.
I was really busy making my project for the Tattered Floral Challenge at Tim Holtz's Blog.
The challenge is to make a tattered flower using his Tattered Floral Die, I am sure many of you have already linked up!! He gives a whole amazing tutorial on his blog. I followed it for the flowers, then added the flowers to a door knob hanger I made and embellished.
Here is my door knob hanger!
I followed Tim's process for making the Grunge Paper Flower. I didn't have the tissue paper he used so I used Tissue Tape instead. I then used a variety of shades of Distress Stain. When it was dry I cut the tattered flowers out.
I sprayed some burlap with Dylusions Spray Ink and inked some Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas and cut them with the die too. Then I assembled the flowers and put a brad in the center.

After "smooshing" my flowers I got busy with my door hanger. I used my Distress Inks to color the cardstock. Since gauze is my obsession, I had to put some on the door hanger. I glued on the flowers, and added embellishments like Baubles, Metal Wings, Memo Pins, and a Key. I also added a "faux gold test lens" I bought from www.stampington.com.
This is the flower that has the wings.
