Petaloo Paintables!!! NEW at ALTERED PAGES!

Do you ever have a project you would like a certain color of flowers?  Or flowers that are variegated? Maybe you want to match a paint or spray.   Petaloo has just solved your dilemma!
To get the above effect I wet the flowers with water.  Spritz some spray mist on a craft mat, water it down for a lighter color of the same shade.  With a paint brush dab the color on your mat, then gently paint the edges of the Petaloo Paintable Flower petals until you get the desired color.  This could also be done with water colors or Gelatos, and media compatible with water!

The effect is beautiful on the Petaloo Paintable Flowers!
This is on a manila tag, stamped with random stamps and ink that has a little contrast.  Water was applied to the tag and then spritzed with the same colors as the painted Petaloo Paintable Flowers.  The leftover "paint" was soaked up by a piece of jute.  To coordinate with the flowers, attach it all with dimensional adhesive and top it of with a ribbon.

  1. Those flowers are on my must have list! Great job!

  2. Great idea for the flowers. I frequently touch up flowers with ink or paint. Very pretty.
