Dimensional Flower Tutorial
I had so many requests for a tutorial on the flowers on my Fleur Anya card I thought I would share how I made them here today...
Cut patterned paper to cover the size of the flowers you are cutting. You might consider using double sided patterned paper or as I have done make a sandwich of papers using double sided adhesive sheet between.
I have cut two from Tim Holtz tattered florals and one(double sided pattern) from flower layers #5
Simply draw a pencil line following the scallops of the flower so they spiral to the centre.
Cut along this line... you really don't have to be accurate, just scallop as you go... the line is only a guide.
If your pencil line was a little heavy handed like mine, you can just rub it off...
So with tweezers, hold the outer edge and start to twist into the centre.
You need to wind it until you have reached the centre and the spiral is tight.
Now let go and allow the flower to rest and unravel ever so slightly.
Using your preferred glue (I used glossy accents) apply some onto the base,
Squeeze or hold the flower tight until the glue has adhered, then leave aside to dry (doesn't take long).
Now it's time to scrunch up the other flower layers, I use my knuckle to shape into the palm of my hand but you can use anything... really... just scrunch and screw it up.
Then adhere your layers with thin adhesive foam or your preferred glue.
You CAN use ANY flower shape you have, you could even use an outline flower stamp.
Hope it inspires and you have great fun making some May flowers :)
On another note:...for those who asked, here are the copic colours I used for my Rockin Rebel card... :)
