Watering Can with Tulips


Hey, Vladka here with my second project on the CottageCutz blog and my first mixed media project at the same time. I really wanted to try this with this beautiful CottageCutz die, the Watering Can and Tulips. I have to tell you this is great and such fun! You don't have to worry about the paint on your fingers and you don't have to be afraid that you will ruin your project, because this is the point - to play with different paints and materials and get messy :))). Yupi Yupi Yay! This is my project where I’ve used different acrylic paints, some stamps, distress Inks for coloring the die cuts and of course this fantastic die:
And there is another thing I’ve tried. For the first time I’ve used an aluminum foil on my project and cut out the watering can twice, from the Kraft paper and from the foil. I’ve glued it together and tapped it with a sponge and different acrylic paints. It will be easier if I just show you :) Here is the link to my tutorial blog, where you can see what I mean and how I did it. :)
I just know that I will do it again, with the foil and with different mixed media techniques. I already have something in my mind :) So, until the next time, enjoy your life and be creative! :)
And here is the CottageCutz die I have used:
