Petaloo & QQ Day 5

Petaloo & Quick Quotes Blog Hop
(more projects & prizes)

Hello Everyone Theresa here,

Welcome to another day of the Quick Quotes and Petaloo Blog Hop, I sure hope you’ve enjoyed the hop and I can honestly say I was so excited to hear we were partnering with Petaloo and equally excited to share my layout using these Gorgeous Flowers! Any of you that know me know I Love Flowers, so this was right up my alley! The hardest part for me was deciding which ones to use! I wanted to use them ALL! Well I started with some fun papers. I used the Patsy's Paradise line of papers, I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page and then I fussy cut around the swirl on the QQ paper for some dimension and depth, then inked everything with Mocha Mama QQ Powderpuff Chalk Ink then popped the fussy cut layers. I also misted a Frosted Butterfly onto my paper with some of my homemade shimmer shine in a copper color and then added the misted Butterfly to the layout nestled in there with my flowers. Added some QQ Ribbon and did the Scrunched Ribbon technique from Michelle. Then I had some fun! I started layering my flowers, I used Canterberry Vine (Cream) & Berry Spray (Red), Mini Canterbury (Teal & Paprika) & Canterbury Rose x 6 (Vanilla & Paprika). It was so hard to stop but I had to add my bow so I scattered a few extra flowers in various places on the layout. I glued everything down with Beacon's 3 in 1 Glue (this glue will hold down almost anything and dries really fast) I used very minimal extras on this, The cardstock: DCWV, & Bling: Michael’s, that’s it. I sure hope I’ve inspired you to add some of these Beautiful Flowers from Petaloo to your next project. Enjoy!


Project: Altered Mini Canvas by ADORA
The Club Q is such an awesome kit to work on. I love the idea of a shadow box, but the quotes seem appealing too for a canvas. QQ put together a great monthly kit for October.

Here are the supplies I used:
QQ Mini Canvas Kit, Petaloo flower, Tim Holtz Distress Paint, Mod Podge

Technique: Decoupage
Decoupage is actually quite simple. If you can cut and paste, you already know most of the techniques involved. Basically, you cut out papers; you glue it onto an object (canvas) and then cover with few coats of glue (Mod Podge) to protect it.
