Not quite last minute, but pretty darn close! The theme for this month’s Creative Chemistry Facebook Challenge was “Inspiration” , seeing something in your daily life that inspires you to make a crafty item, using any technique that we learned in the Creative Chemistry 101 online class. And for some reason, I was coming up blank…and staring off into space, and my eye kept creeping back to an item that sits on my desk at work, is usually in my car, and can be seen on my work desk on many WOYWW posts….my Arizona Green Tea bottle. And let’s face it; I only tried it the very first time because I love the label! (Well, actually the cool green bottle, but these plastic ones are much more affordable by the case).
So, here is my tag, using Marbled stains of Picket Fence, Mown Grass and Evergreen Bough. The tattered floral die made the flowers, and as I have become obsessed with coffee filter roses, and want to make them, I bought the coffee filters, and used those to cut the flowers. They were colored with the Picked Raspberry stains, spritzed and flicked a lot to get some variation. Wow those filters really suck up the color!!
Now lets see if I ever do get around to making those roses….
