It's Kath here from the Craftwork Cards UK Design Team and I'm sharing my creations made for the Create a Wreath Blog Hop. You'll have arrived here from Barb Craft's post using the beautiful Bohemian Create a Wreath Kit on the USA Blog.
I've made two wreaths using this gorgeous Mr and Mrs kit.
The first one is relatively simple - a less is more creation:
I covered the chipboard heart with the patterned papers included in the kit and used a piece of Cut and Dry Foam with Black Soot Distress Ink to colour the edges. I attached the small flowers with a glue pen and added Candi to the centres. I'd normally bend the petals upwards but the flowers are covering the holes through which you can attach ribbon so I couldn't do that this time.
The focal point of the wreath is a layered bloom made up of four flowers from the kit and I added a pearl to the centre of the spiral flower. Here's a close up:
For my second wreath I wanted to show you how you can completely change the look of the kits by colouring the die cuts. Each kit contains enough die cuts to create two wreaths but I got a bit carried away here and used almost a full kit's worth of flowers to create one wreath - less is more went out of the window on this one!
I sprayed the backs of all of the flowers with a Purple Pansy Glimmer Mist spray and when I had layered them together I used an Ink Duster to colour them with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. To add some shimmer and sparkle I sprayed the finished wreath with Silver Spray and Sparkle.
Here are some close ups of the individual blooms:
If you are in the UK and want to buy a Create a Wreath kit, they are available from craft shops or on-line here.
Tomorrow remember to hop over to the USA Blog and see what Stacey has made with the Vintage Chic Create a Wreath Kit.
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop.
