Part 2 - Baby Wipe flower project with step by step guide

Today’s fun project is one I did for the Feb/Mar 2018 issue of Mixed up Mag – How to use Baby wipe flower in a project.

Step 1: Make the baby wipe flowers using the method found in part 1 ( Set them aside for later.
Step 2: Draw a shape resembling a vase. Then colour the background of your canvas or project. I used water colouring methods by diluting dylusions paint with lots of water.
Step 3: Stencil on some texture and interest on the background and on your vase.
Step 4: Using the same method to create the flowers, make leaves for your flowers by just cutting out a simple leave shape out of your baby wipes in green. Then apply heat to them. (See article on how to make babywipe flowers)
Step 5: Use hot glue to piece the flowers and leaves together. Be careful as it’s hot and you could get burned.
Step 6: Again using your hot glue, glue these flowers onto your project, over the vase so it looks like the flowers are coming out of the vase.
Step 7: Add finishing touches by using a stabilo all pencil in black to create some shadows and dimensional effects.
Step 8: Round off the edges of your project by going around the page with Memento black ink to just tie it all together.
Step 9: Now stand back and admire your beautiful art work!
DETAILS: Be sure to use hot glue to glue the flowers down, as they are a bit heavy and could easily fall off. Don’t add heat over your flowers once you glued them down, as this will change the shape and make them curl more.
