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

Hello!
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!
YES USING CHALK SPRAY I MADE!

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.
