A Spoooooky floral spray!


Today I'm combining two blog hops! DUN DUN DUN!!!

So at the end be sure to pick which hop you're on and continue along the way :) My project today is a handmade floral spray. Making floral sprays is a pretty fun experience, but I'm always at a loss at the end of them on how anybody could ever make money doing it!! They're hard work and really take a toll on your hands.. all the twisting and pulling, the gripping and yada yada huh? 

Anyways! Here's my spoooooky floral spray:


Originally I sculpted the bats in Creative Paperclay®. To guarantee I'd always get the same shape I then molded them with Amazing Mold Putty and filled the molds four or five times with more Creative Paperclay®. They're painted with acrylic paint. 

The leaves are stamped with the script section of the Tree Writing Collage from VLVS! in black archival ink. They're distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink. 





Other supplies used include wire, glue and black floral tape.

Now choose your blog hop!!
