Here it is. My fave project from my artisan entries.
This one took the longest time to make. From cutting all those hundreds of flowers with my big shot, to layering them and pinning them on the styrofoam ball, to sitting and starring at it to decide how I should decorate the bucket, inside and out. It was also the first project I started to make and the last to finish. But it was worth my time and effort. I love everything about it. My biggest "ah ha" moment came when I finally brain stormed an idea to cover the oasis inside the tin that holds the stick in place. Those are 5 Petal Flower Punches! I pulled up all the petal, sponged them a little and put them in place with a glue gun. Love that fun effect of pokey grass!Hope you enjoyed my tour through all my artisan entries. After all is said and done now, I think I will enter next year again, just hopefully I will get my butt in gear and start working on it sooner then later :)
