As promised, here are a few GlueFoil Rose examples.
All of the flowers in the example were created using the GlueFoil Rose Technique I shared yesterday. There is one small exception on the Mom tag...for the small flower I used one small flower die-cut. I cut two petals off, embossed, formed the main flower and used the 2 cut-off petals for the center.
Several people e-mailed asking about Streuter Technologies GlueFoil. It is a colored metal foil craft sheet with a heat activated glue on the back. It comes in a wide variety of metallic and colors. It can be die-cut, paper punched, dry embossed and so much more! It's lots of fun to play with and can be used in a multitude of ways. Here are a few more ideas on how to create with Streuter's GlueFoil and GlueFilm.
On to the examples....
MOM GlueFoil Rose Tag...
This was created using my Distressed Glue Technique (both the tag & torso). All stamps are Just For Fun.
In addition to the GlueFoil roses I also incorporated several other colors of GlueFoil into this design. The border along the left hand size was all cut with border punches and deco scissors. The letters "LIFE" were covered in blue GlueFoil and also frames the photo. The background was created by adhering the vintage sheet music to the canvas using clear GlueFilm and was then white washed.
Notice the amazing dimension you can achieve with the GlueFoil. It really adds so much depth and interest to the finished collage. I wish you could see it in person to get a feel for how cool these flowers really are.
So there you go...
