Serious Cuteness....Round Three!!!

Do you remember a few months back when I made this little beauty??....
If you didn't catch that tutorial you can see it HERE!!  It was my first attempt at 3D decoupaging!! It took a lot of time and a lot of experimenting, but it was well worth every minute!! What you may have forgotten was that this was only ONE of THREE that I made!!    

TA-DAAA!  I not only created the flower, I also did a tree and a sun!  They each turned out fantastic!!!  Just to recap....My friend Angie is reworking her twin girls room!  She wants custom, colorful, large pieces of art!  So this project is for her!!  

I decoupaged the background of this just like the flower!  (Go HERE!! if you need a reminder)  For the actual tree, I tore pieces of paper, then wrinkled them before decoupaging them down!  I wanted to give the tree a more realistic, textured look!  I then added a few birds and flowers to give the art a more colorful appearance!

Here is a better view of the wrinkled paper!  And if you look closely, I added a very special detail to this piece of art.....I took a few twigs and glued them on top of the tree to add more visual interest!

Here you can see the twigs more clearly!  I simply hot glued them down and prayed that they would stay! hah   So far so good!!

Here is the sun!  I really loved the idea of mixing orange and pink together, therefore I decoupaged the background with torn pink paper, and the sun with torn orange paper!

This art doesn't have any 3D elements to it.  I did however add a few buttons for extra interest!

And here are the 3 final pieces hanging!!  They each turned out perfectly!  Angie, I hope your girls are loving their art!!!
