As you may have noticed lately I'm loving painting roses at the moment.
Here's a pink candle, painted with pink roses. What !!! I hear you cry. Normally I wouldn't paint pink roses on a pink background, but I thought the candle was such a pretty colour, that I wanted to keep the pretty feel with it.
So firstly I dabbed on a couple of green shades with a stencil brush, then painted the leaves and the flower heads on top of that. Although it took quite a long time to do, as I had to wait for each layer to dry naturally, (no using a heat tool to speed things up) lol, I am happy with the result and think it still looks pretty.
Its hard to show the full design of a curved candle, so here's a few photos from different angles.
Here's what I did in between waiting for layers to dry..
These started life as gravy granule pots. I use them to keep old paintbrushes and scissors, etc in, so I thought I would give them a spruce up.
I printed off a couple of backing papers from Sheena's cd, and a sheet of poppy decoupage. After cutting out the poppies, I used pva to glue on the papers, folding it down into the inside to get a neat finish. Next the flowers were glued on and then gave them a thin coating of watered down pva over the top to seal them. Quick and Easy!
I am entering my candle into

CRAFT - Mothers Day challenge - I think this candle will make a perfect Mothers Day gift
