I'm so excited! I have a new flower tutorial to share with you! I found these flowers on YouTube and I think they're just fabulous!
This is what you will need:
- cardstock (without white core)
- Cricut or something similar
- wooden skewer
- spray bottle with water
- bling (pearls, beads, Stickles...) for flower center
- ink ( optional )
- glimmer mist ( optional )
In the video I saw she used Sizzix to cut the flowers. I used my Cricut and a cartridge called " Walk In my Garden" ( the first flower- Daisy)
You will need 6 flowers in three different sizes.
- 1 3/4 x 2
- 1 1/2 x 2
- 1 1/4 x 2
Lightly spray the flowers with water.
Use the skewer to bend up the petals
For the really thin petals I use a piercing tool instead.
This is what you will have now:
Gently pinch the petals in between your fingertips.
Let them dry for 15-20 minutes before you glue them together. Perfect timing to start a new flower:)
After they are dry, glue the 6 layers together starting with the bigger ones.
Add some bling in the middle.
When you're done you can spray glimmer mist all over the flower. Click here to see how to make your own glimmer mist.
Aren't they gorgeous ?
I used some of them here on this layout based on my sketch # 3.
I'm working on two more flower tutorials right now:)
If you wonder how come I blog so often, I guess you could say that I am a bit bored and lonely :(
Hubby is gone and the kids are busy with school and playing.
I don't know why I have so much time on my hands all of a sudden. I can't remember what kept me busy last year?
Oh well...scrapping and blogging is not a bad way to spend your time I guess...
