Fall Layout with Painted Flowers


Hi CIP fans!  Dana here today and I'm so excited to share my first project for Creative Inspirations Paint!  I wanted to create some fall flower clusters for my layout.  I didn't have flowers to match this specific color palette, so I started with white flowers and some Creative Inspirations Paint.  I'm thrilled with my custom painted flowers!


I also painted the fence, which began as natural wood, with Chocolate.  I love the subtle shimmer!


Painting flowers and embellishments to match patterned papers is easy and fun with the fabulous range of CI paints.  With several shades of each color, adding depth and highlights is a breeze.


I used Sunshine, Canary and Mellow Yellow to color this flower.  I started by coloring the center of the flower with Sunshine.  I then colored the majority of each petal with Canary.  I finished this bloom with random highlights of Mellow Yellow along the tips of the flower petals.


I used Raw Sienna, Gold and Autumn Wheat to color this flower.  I applied Raw Sienna to the petals, leaving the tips white.  I added Gold to create a darker flower center.  I then added Autumn Wheat to several of the petal tips to finish.


I used Burnt Clay, Copper, Burnt Sienna and Mango to color these flowers, working out from the center from darkest to lightest paint color.  Once the flowers were dry, I used a dry brush and some Winter Frost to add white highlights to the petals for a more shabby feel.


I used Emerald, Sage, Green Olive and Mint to color these flowers, working out from the center from the lightest to darkest paint color.  I used Emerald to lightly color the edges of the flower petals.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  If you would like a chance to win some of this fabulous paint, join in on any one of the weekly challenges each month.  You don't need to use Creative Inspirations paints to play along, but if you do, you double your chances of winning!
