Here's a little technique I want to share with you:
This weekend Scrapbook Royalty is at the San Diego Scrapbook Expo in Del Mar, CA teaching this fun little make n take I designed. The kit is $5 and can be purchased at the show with 100% of the proceeds being donated to charity. For more information on the kit or Scrapbook Royalty, please visit http://scrapbookroyalty.org and register.
The make n take is a fun little wall hanging that features paper flowers that are all the rage right now–these can be created with scraps but I found that Donna Salazar's new Artistic papers work FABULOUSLY for this kind of flower!! The thick watercolor style paper can be colored with Spray Ink to match any project PLUS it's texture lends interest to the flowrs. Also, the paper works really well with liquid glue, holding up to the moisture so that the flower can dry properly.Here's how to make the flowers:
1. Gather these supplies: Donna Salazar Artistic Paper, Strong Liquid Adhesive, Spray Ink, Scissors, Rhinestones, and Tweezers.
2. Cut a circle from the Artistic Paper. Spray with Ink and allow to dry. Then cut that circle into a spiral. You can rough up the edges of the spiral by using the Distrezz It All by Zutter or your fingernail.
Here's another project I made with the same style of flower:
