I saw this on "Pinterest",some time ago and fell in LOVE with it.
This is an artist's piece made from metal that has hand cut flowers all over it. Its back lit by LED string lights ....Looks Awesome!!!...isn't it ?...    
I have been planning to do this one way or other, tried different medias,from tin of a soda can to layered foil to card stock ....everything......
Card stock worked the best for me till now.....
though i wish i had painted it off -white before cutting to match the color of canvas,or taken a different color paper....black ,light brown or offwhite...as i wanted to add multi color layered flowers on top to add color and bling....

   Then recently a saw Michele's version of the same   .....looks beautiful.....
Seeing her's and "itsy-bitsy flower challenge" gave me the push to move my lazy bum and start doing things i so very much love...lol...

Wanted to do this in so many different ways ...
1.with clean cut outs..
2.with clean and partial cuts...
3.with layering...

And ended up doing all of them in one canvas only,clean cut flowers under the color layered flowers so that their is more light peeping out from beneath.And partial cut leaves and scallops which i have pulled up slightly...looks nice if i may say so myself.....
I'm gonna do few more for sure,though should i keep the sizes same or differ them, i have yet to decide...Mine one is 12"/12" canvas...quite comfortable to handle when you are cutting the flowers and leaves,all the curves and circle are easy to make,as one can rotate the whole canvas for that perfect round centers for the flowers....I would love to do a really big one....lets see.....

  1. Truly orgasmic Di!!! Jus imagine the room filled with one wall completely made of this structure. Definitely can be a wall piece for classy restaurants to give oomph factor to the ambiance.

  2. I love how the bright colors of your flowers pop off of the white canvas during the day! It turned out beautifully, Shilpi. Thank you so much for sharing it with me, and including my version in your post!

    I'm sharing this on my Facebook page. :)

  4. Shilpi! This is wonderful! I'm just a bit confused on how you exactly did this? ... I want to try it myself but I just want to make sure.
