Spotlight on the Design Team: Christina Sedor (Plus a digi freebie)

This week’s spotlight is on DT member Christina Sedor. Christina  has been a member of our DT for over a year. She is always bright and enthusiastic, and the first to jump in and help when asked!

Christina’s featured project is a Pressed Flower Ornament, here’s what she has to say about it:

Pressed Flower Ornament

 

This is one of my favourite projects, the Pressed Flower Ornament, which I place out on display in our home. It reminds me of summer, my grandpa who has passed on, his favourite flower was pansies, and I love everything about flowers, and try to incorporate them in most of my projects. I have created other pressed flower ornaments which I hang from our Christmas Tree.

Pressed Flower Ornaments are alot of fun to make, they usually take a few months to finish. First I pick flowers from our garden and my mom’s. Then I press them, I use an atlas, it can press alot of flowers. In a couple weeks I check how they are doing, when they are pressed, I lay them out, choose any size of glass ornament, I use a matte medium to glue and overlap flowers, once ornament is covered, for a finishing look, I use a matte medium or you can use a gloss medium. When finished you have a unique, Pressed Flower Ornament.

      Hi Kelley,
      The flowers are glued on the outside of the glass ornament with a matte medium, I used tweezers to apply them:)
