Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe Blog Hop! So many great prizes~!

Welcome to Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafes
First Blog Hop!
Feb 28th - March 1st
That gives you 3 days to play!

 Here is my project.
I wanted to share how to make these flowers!

Supplies  scissors, flower punch, paper bags,
Elmer's glue (or any school glue) buttons, or pearls, walnut ink,
chalk with water in spray bottle.
I have used metallic colors blitzy and ritzy. 

I first cut my bags so they are easy to punch

I find that if my punch starts to stick a few punches of tin foil sharpens the punch.

Punched flowers

Now time to crinkle the flowers.  I have found the longer they stay crinkled the better. 

Next I spray them with Walnut Ink and then with
the chalk spray.  The chalk spray gives a great shine.

Next I take 6 petals and glue a dot in the middle of each and stack.
See how glue is here, this is done for each layer.

Now for making the flower have more texture.  I squeeze down in the middle and twist to layer the petals. 
Here you can see I have added buttons in the center .
A ton of colors can be made using walnut inks and chalks.
The chalk spray is what gives the wonderful shimmer and shine.
