A Black Eye Susan Barrette using Sizzix Susan's Garden Die

As a girl born and raised in Maryland, my favorite wildflower is the Black Eyed Susan. All along the highways in my home state you can see them growing. I made sure to plant them at my home in CT now that I am adult to give me that piece of Maryland. So when I saw this Susan's Garden Bigz die by Sizzix I knew I had to have it. I made with the die a Black Eyed Susan barrette for my daughter the other night. I colored the petals and created the the black powder look on the petals with Pan Pastels. I then finished it with a coat of Triple Thick by Deco Art. I glued the flower to the barrette with the same glue I used to put the flower together, The Ultimate. It is extremely strong and great to add firmness to paper projects.




Modeled by my daughter.
