Hi Linnie Bloom Fans!! Aren't you SO glad that spring is FINALLY sprouting?? I adore flowers and I even love spring rain showers!!
On Pinterest, I keep seeing these adorable pics of rainboots with flowers inside. I kept trying to draw a boot ... but they just never looked right. That is when I KNEW the Linnie Blooms boot was going to work ... So I drew the design onto the canvas with a pencil and then cut the the little sides off ...
I painted the boot a bright pink and black. Then I stenciled on a couple of bright white hearts and voila, CUTE BOOT!!
I laid out the paper I wanted to make my flowers out of ... but I didn't like any of my green paper. So I ripped a page out of my sketchbook. Stamped some black dots and painted on green paint mixed with glazing to make it more translucent.
I kept going back and forth about the background. I love using wood boards for my projects, but for the first time, I just wanted to keep it plain (Crazy, I know!!) Instead of paper and paint, I covered the board in clear gesso and sanded the edges... and I loved it!
I cut out my green shapes and used gel medium to glue them down.
I glued the boot down with Quick Dry Helmar 450.
Then I cut out the flowers and glued them down too. I made sure not to glue everything down flat so that the stems and flowers literally jump off the board!!
Thanks for stopping by Linnie Blooms today!! I hope you enjoyed my project and it inspired you to create something!!! - Karen
