I confess. I really do. For some reason in my life I really like flowers. Real ones, pretty sparkly scrappy ones, ones I make...yes, I love Prima and the ones at Webster...love looking at people who make things with flowers on their pages. Love to make my own too. Spotted a cool one a bit back on a blog that I wanted to make. I have gone through several versions of trial and error, burnt my arm on a heat gun in the name of making one...searched for a blog showing how to make the new ones everyone seems to have except me out of ribbon.
Here is the blog where I spotted the flower I wanted to copy. Teresa is a cool artist, so check out the rest of her blog as well! Next time I think I'll use more layers! She said she will do a tutorial at some point so maybe I will pick up more pointers!
I then cut them out with really sharp scissors and stacked them up with a brad in the middle. Two big circles and one smaller one.
THEN, pull out your mist and spray the it up good! Since you already have the heat gun out, you can use it to dry the mist so you can use your flower right away. I then sprayed some spray adhesive and glitter to make it extra cool.
Here is my flower clustered in with a Prima flower and a vintage button.
So, next about the pages I made. My SIL and I are exchanging pages from her visit. I choose the photos she took of our girls in my meadow since I knew I might be able to play along with a blog challenge or two and have extra fun.
I'm going to let her pick which one she likes the best. I love both of them for various reason. Leave me a comment on which one is your favorite! Now, both don't have the little butterfly charm because the second one I had has vanished in the whirl wind of scrap supplies that are now laying out all over. So, at some point when I find the little bugger, it will go on the page that is missing it!
I used a sketch layout made by Nadia at Once Upon a Sketch for these pages. Then I thought maybe about playing along with Bird is the Word. And you guessed it, their word for this month is TODAY! So, they got married and I got a fun page to make!
My sis in law also got the benefit from a recent scrappy care package I got from a friend! I am constantly stealing photos of their daughter and using them because she is so gosh darn cute! So, they got me a HUGE stash of goodies! The butterflies, some of the colored doilies, and the big letters got used right away! Big thanks to them for feeding my addiction. And, they haven't seen the last of their baby on my blog, I got the SWEETEST photo of her wearing black and yellow at our company picnic. I am thinking Sweet as Honey would make a nice title....
