Love Plaque

I love plaques, frames, books, oh well you get the idea, I just love to alter projects. I found this plaque at my local craft store for 2.99 , I had a 40% coupon. Yippee!!! My blue berries and brown flowers were also purchased there on sale. Another Yippee!!!The other flowers are from Prima and Stringing Heart Flowers along with some that I made. I painted my frame first using Cramcoat Burnt Umber. Placing my paper on the inside of plaque I then added some large twill ribbon and mini blue ric rac. I took two 3 1/2" dollies and ink the top of them with my Chestnut Roan ink, once they were ink I glue 1 doily to the lower inside left corner, 1/2 of a doily to the top right of the curve and 1/4 doily to the lower right inside corner of my plaque. My letters are the GCD Big Alphabet that I covered with the Frances Paper and ink using Chestnut Roan ink.

I used a Marvy 3 1/2" punch for my large flowers, but you can use any size. Just remember the smaller the circle the small the flower. I started on the outside of my circle cutting my circle into a spiral. Taking my tweezers I began rolling and as I rolled I would occasionally put us a small amount of glue to hold it into place. When I got it completely rolled I glue it to a small circle. When I knew my glue was dry I than added it to my plaque along with a little bling.
