Today I was stuck babysitting my dog Nikita because my other dog was at the groomer's. Nikita gets very upset when Princess goes to the vet/groomer. While babysitting, I decided to try to create something with a Drink Tray that was waiting to go to the recycling bin.
It started off looking like this:
Then progressed to this:
Then I decided to cut down the sides to create a flower. Once that was done, I painted the cardboard with acrylic paint. I would love to use that new product that Creatively-Green plans to sell soon called Generation Green Acrylic paint with colorants. But that will be used the next time.
While waiting for the paint to dry. I came up with the idea to try to create my own version of the Flower soft product. So I took a piece of the cardboard and added pigment( water-based ink) to it to make it the color I wanted. Then I scraped it with a knife to make tiny bits.
This is what I came up with:
And this is what my fingers looked like after.
So in the end, You finally get to see my finished project. I added brads to hold it together. And probably should have used one more color of paint to make some shading. I choose to keep the edges rough to make it appear more rustic.
Hope you like it.
