Wreath by Rachel Dutko

Hi Colour Blast fans!
Its Rachel with you, and for my project today I have decided to create some home decor. I have made a wreath, which seems to be a popular DIY crafting item at the moment.

To start I applied different Colour Pastes to a piece of Kraft cardstock. (I used Kraft because it is a lot sturdier than white cardstock). I have used Deep Water, Lipstick, Just Blue, Bling, Envy, Fire Engine, Apple Of My Eye, Royalty, Sunshine and Tangareen Dream.

Once they were all dry (I left it overnight), I stamped a leaf image 
with black archival ink, then cut each one out.

The next step was to cover an embroidery hoop 

I then stuck down my coloured leaves all around the hoop.

I added some frayed burlap all around the wreath behind the leaves.
I added only a few embellishments because the colour and shimmer of the 
leaves themselves are a feature.

A few close ups-

And this is what it looks like on my front door!

I hope I've given you some inspiration on how to use 
your Colour Blast products in a different way.

Thanks for looking

Rachel x x
