sneak peek and some ideas for jazzin up your flowers

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Hi friends! It's raining here in Los Angeles and I'm hoping it will end by Saturday for CHA. I've been working away on projects and just got a last minute Fed Ex package with some goodies to make a few samples for a manufacturer I'll be helping out at CHA. I'll show you what I come up with as soon as I finish my samples.
Here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on this week for Paper Posies. If you are looking for a fantastic kit club, look no more. You can take a look at our past kits here.

I can't wait to show you the entire layout, I'm really trying to be faithful to my new year's resolution and taking more time for myself.
I wanted to share how I made the flowers on my layout. I started with some fabric flowers on the left from Bo Bunny and some paper flowers on the right from Kaiser Craft

I sprayed them generously with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

And dried them with my heat tool

Now I just use reg tacky glue to dust the petals...

And sprinkle glitter all over the edges

And shake off the excess

And here's the same process on the Kaiser Craft flowers

Now layer and add something to the center like a brad or a maya Road flowe like I did above and your plain flowers are now FAB!
Thanks for stopping by, be sure and leave me a link if you decide to try this idea. I'd love to see what you create!
