Flower power :D

You may have wondered why I only bought white flowers. Well, here is why. I would LOVE to have all the possible color combinations available in all different kinds of flowers, but that would cost me LOTS of $$$. Most of the time, when I cannot choose a color for flowers or chipboards and such, I buy white or blank ones. That way I have more possibilities to use them. I have all kinds of colors to color with in my stash and to show you what you can do, I did a little experiments this morning on those flowers to show you. It is super easy to do PLUS you get your own unique flowers :D

Here you can see all of them together for sizes. The large flowers are about 2" wide.

These were all done using just watercolors. Pretty simple, you can color them as much as you like and the watercolor almost paints itself if you just let the paper suck it in.

The green one I sprayed with Tattered angels glimmer mist. (olive vine) and the cream one, I didn't color at all, I only used a damped brush to put some really shiny gold powder on the edges. This powder is a cosmetic gold powder, it is a little more coarse than mica powders but not as coarse as fine glitter. It looks like a slightly coarse powder of real gold. (pretty neat huh :D)

First I randomly and very loosely painted this flower with yellow watercolor. Then I used orange stickles on the edges. This one turned out prettier than I thought it would :Þ

Here I first painted the whole flower with MM speciality glace-gold paint. It turned out quite flat I thought, so I added some of that pretty gold powder I have and then I used black ink loosely on the edges.

This one is my favorite I think. It was such a nice surprice. First I used black ink (with a brush) to color the flower totally black. Then I used a little of the gold powder on the edges just for fun, and OMG it looks STUNNING dont you think ?

These two were hard to capture on photo. They are both really shimmery. The white one I first sprayed with Grapite glimmer mist and then put some silver stickles on the edges. The blue one (sorry about the shade) I just painted with Shimmerz Blingz.


  1. Þau koma alveg meiriháttar flott út !! Eg hef verið að lita blóm líka og t.d. gull. Ég hef ekki enn fengið útkomu með gullið sem ég er sérlega ánægð með. Ætla að apa eftir þér og athuga hvort ég verð ekki sáttari ;o) Takk fyrir að deila þessu :o)

  2. Snild hjá þér. Já bara æðislegt.
