It's a purple kind of day

Ebrush Design Team: Jan Hunter Week 4 Cycle 2

I am in love with this pansy creation! Love the 3d effect the whole is a purple thang...

For this week's eBrush design team project, I decided to make some flowers to go along with an old song from my youth.

For this project you'll need:
eBrush and SN adapter
Markers (Spectrum Noir - LG2, DG2, DG3, Blender, HB2, HB3, TB7)
Large Balled Stylus
Yellow Glitter
Pansy SVG File (
digital cutting machine and software
Digital paper ( Vintage Pansies)
8 x 10 canvas
Collage Pauge (glossy)
ModPodge (glossy)
White cardstock
White copy paper
Cut the pansy file at the size it imports.  For this project I cut three flowers and three leaves in white cardstock. Set aside.  The picture below is just the flower parts.


I used the ebrush and markers to color my flowers.  You can add a bit more interest by using the blender marker and flick in a few extra veins.


Add a few details.  Then using the stylus, create a little more dimension.

Put the flowers together -- add a small drop of glue in the center of the flower and liberally add some glitter and let dry.  Remove the excess.  Color the leaves as desired and add some dimension using the stylus.  Add a thin coat of Modge Podge to the flower and the leaves. Glue the leaves to the back of the flower.

Using an editing program, create the document for your background.  I used Paint 2 (MAC) and imported the digital paper and then added the wording for this particular canvas,
Little purple pansies touched with yellow gold,
Growing in one corner of the garden old,
We are very tiny, but must try, try, try,
Just one spot to gladden, you and I.

In whatever corner we may chance to grow,
Whether cold or warm the wind may ever blow,
Dark the day, or sunny, we must try, try, try
Just one spot to gladden, you and I.

Pansies are among my favorite flowers for Spring and Fall color.

Print and tear the edges of the printed paper.  Using the Collage Pauge, apply the paper to the canvas as directed by the manufacturer.  Let dry.
Arrange and glue the flowers to the canvas.  Add some additional embellishments as desired.


Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you've created some crafting  time in your schedule this coming week!
