Mothers Day Altered Centerpiece


Hi, my name is Bonnie and I am so excited to be a guest designer for Blue Fern! I'm happy to share my first project on Mother's Day! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
i love making altered items. I was inspired by the Attic Charm paper collection when I decided to create a gift for my mom using a vintage watering can I found in a 
house we were renovating.

I used the Attic Finds paper to cover the main part of the watering can leaving enough of the metal showing to keep that vintage quality to my project. I used the Lace #5 as an accent
to trim the top of the can.

i made the flower petals out of the script Mayfair paper from the Remnants collection, I painted one side of the petals white for contrast. I used a chipboard piece from the Wanderlust collection, pasting the petals around the edge of the oval and attaching a favorite photo of my mom with my sister and me for a personal touch. I wanted to make sure both sides of the flower were decorated since it will be displayed as a centerpiece.

I used the doily shape from the ephemera pack to create a flower accent. The stems are the Rose Leaves chipboard and the mini flower is cut from Lace #4. I attached the calling card with yarn and tiny cloths pin. The pearl button is from my stash to finished off my lace flower.

 i finished off my project with a sweet sentiment that lets my mom know
 how much she means to me.
Thank you for visiting the blog today and taking a peek at my first post!
