Summer Mood – Floral Tile IV.
Long time no post! I am continuing with my series of densely packed floral tiles, this time with something appropriate for the season – summer mood with daisies and a tiny sunflower.
These are definitely the most time consuming of all the flowers I’ve made so far. I ended up spending over four hours just to roll and shape the petals for the sunflower. I guess this is what one would call “time well spent”. 🙂
The size of the tile is 12cm x 12cm or 9″ x 9″. The sunflower measures around 8cm in diameter. Once mounted on a 23cm x 23cm cardboard, it will fit perfectly into the square shadowbox frame from Ikea. I currently have some of the tiles placed on small easels all over my house and they look great just like that. I’ve been asked many times if I frame all of my projects (because there is concern that dust will set and then cleaning will prove a little bit difficult) and from where I buy the deep frames. I do have some pieces for display which have never been framed and even if they have been exposed for years, still look ok. From time to time I use a soft brush to remove any dust particles and that’s pretty much it. In the end, it’s all up to your personal preference.
If you are interested in this piece you can find it in my Etsy shop, along with other flower tiles. I will add more items soon and I will also post them here.
Have a wonderful weekend! I’m off to enjoy the beautiful summer days before a heat wave will ruin everything! 😀
