Simply Flowers

Rain Rain Rain and more rain :-( I hope it doesnt go on for too long Im in desperate need of some warm sunny days.

So while we have been having all this rain I have been making a huge stash of my own flowers, hope you like it. I was inspired by Mels tutorial for making your own paper flowers if you would like to see her tut you can find a link in the post below.

I created a sheet of flowers in PSE and printed them out and then on the reverse side I printed a whole page of text using a flower poem, cut out the flowers and coloured in with promarkers on the text side. The picture doesnt show up the text very well, but the technique is very effective. Each flower is then shaped with a ball tool and seed beads are used for the centre, but you could use anything such as glitter or buttons and gems.

The leaves i just punched and the butterfly was embossed using the sticky stuff powder and the gold foil is then pressed onto the image, I love this technique as it gives such a lovely finish,  finally I coloured the butterfly with promarkers.

Using the same poem text in word I printed another sheet and made the ovals with my cuttlebug for the centre piece.
