  1. I love these. So beautiful. Care to share how you made them? I think the flowers are cut out then pasted on and then the vase and table are painted directly onto the canvas.
    Is that right? I’m dying to try this out!
    thnaks for posting.

    • Your right on!

      Each student made their own flower, first by drawing with a sharpie, then collaged with tissue paper and glitter paint. I created the background and vase with oil paint, on canvas, for the wonderful bouquet of flowers.

    I am an art teacher that would love to do this project with just my own children. What kind of paper did you use to make the flowers? Was it copy paper or cardstock? These all look amazing. I need one in my house first!! Thanks. Amy Floyd
