A Mother's Love (Laurie Moore's "Creative Cone" May Challenge Entry)

This month I joined Laurie Moore's May Challenge and created "A Mother's Love" canvas.  I enjoyed last month's challenge so much that I couldn't pass up another challenge for this month.  It's fun to try to come up with something with the item she features for her challenges and I envisioned a "vase" filled with flowers when I received the cone.  I wanted to do some stenciling with molding paste on the cone but it was impossible to wrap the stencil around it without the paste smearing.  I had an idea of taking a piece of tissue paper, stenciling the image on that with molding paste and then after it dried I shaped it around the cone.  It worked perfectly!  I used gesso on the cone and then sprayed it with Prima Iris Color Bloom Spray.  I used some Petaloo flowers, Leaky Shed chipboard pieces and some small buds from a flower arrangement to fill the cone.  It's a small Mother's Day gift for my mom.  I hope she like it!
