Hydrangeas on my table!

Hellooo Crafty folks,
Its October already! The new month brings us to another challenge at Rhedd's Creative Spirit where the theme is always "Anything Goes, Altered art or Mixed media".

Well, I have altered a plastic curd bucket, a leftover after inviting guests at home, lol! The size was perfect to make it into a flower vase.

I decided to give it 2 coats of chalk paints, bit of grey and white dabbed with a sponge randomly. I wanted a rustic, cemented kind of look. Once, I liked the color, I went about doing some stenciling in white and also decoupaged some floral tissues here and there.

My flower was ready to be displayed...but to display what???

Well, here is another experiment that I tried, I made hydrangeas using coffee filter paper!
I love hydrangeas and where I live, I have no access to this beauty and so I decided to craft this from my studio!

I have used coffee filter papers and food colors and made 3 bunches of them in different colors and have arranged them in the case!

I am not sure which side looks the but, however I looved it from all angles and love my new hydrangeas on the table! I also added some lavender oil to the food color and so my flower do smell a bit, lol!

Hope you liked my project and do hop in to see what the rest of the team has in store for you.
Do participate and play along.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.
