I've been doing a little graffiti crafting of my own and tonight it is this pretty graffiti rose! It didn't turn out exactly like I wanted, but I still think it is pretty fab. And it is sooooo easy. Here's how you make it!

Materials:
Tulip Fabric Spray in red, pink, orange, and black
Tulip Fashion Graffiti paint tagger in black
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
Letter stickers (small)
fake white silk rose
black leaves from black roses
black tulle
black felt
pinback/barrette
scissors

Instructions:
1. Cut stem from fake white rose.
2. Place letter stickers randomly all over white rose.
3. Spray Tulip Fabric Sprays randomly over entire rose. Don't saturate entire rose. Leave some areas white. Let dry.
4. Remove letters from rose. Mine honestly didn't stick as well as I would have hoped, so the color saturated into most of my stickers. Boo! But it still looks pretty.
5. Edge petals with black paint tagger. Let dry. It's imperfect, just have fun playing!
6. Cut two strips of tulle (approx. 9" long x 2" wide). Fold them in half and tie into a knot. Using Tacky Glue, glue to back of rose. Cut and glue black leaves onto back as well.
7. Cut out a 2.5" diameter circle from felt. Glue over top of knotted tulle and press into place. Let dry.
8. Glue pin back/barrette onto felt and let dry.

Here's a detail of where the letters did show up!


Here's a link to the blog post I did about it... http://swelldesigner.blogspot.com/2010/03/make-your-own-graffiti-rose-pinhairclip.html
