Hello and welcome to my blog!!
I’ve got a grungy project to share with you today:) Click the button below to watch the breakdown of this project. Detailed pictures at the end of the post!
This is my “Grungy Flower Pot” I made for round #2 of the Discount Paper Crafts design challenge! The pot I made has handmade grungy flowers in it and I will be sharing the tutorial on it in the next post! It was fun and easy to make!!:)
Now, the theme was “Girly Grunge”. The techniques we were to use were 2 types of distressing. They were Ink distressing and paper roughing/distressing, I love distressing!!
Lets first start with some the items in my package. The eggs I covered in old book paper that I later cut to 1/3 and 2/3 to have them look like they were mushrooms and flower centers!! The blue pail I cut, split and folded/rolled out to look like is was grunged and damaged. Can you find the alligator in my pot?? LOL I handmade paper flowers to go in the pot and did a grungy distressed look on them, mainly the creases which is an effect I LOVE!! The bouquet rested in the pot and the other 2 laid in the pot as if they had fallen, you’ll see in one of the pictured that they are supported by 2 of the gears in my package!

Ok, here we go!!
The project itself was very dark and grungy but floral and girly. This was challenging but super fun too!
