yup, after a long time, i was able to finally create a little something.
i've seen handmade flowers used on layouts and mini albums over at youtube and i really wanted to do something like it.
since i have just cleaned my scraproom, it means i have space to start creating again. and these handmade flowers were first on my agenda. first, i bought the tattered florals die by tim holtz, then searched youtube for video tutorials and then it was time to practice.
i love what i was able to create!
i followed the tutorial from these 3 ladies: marion (apieceofcraftdotcom); jennifer (craftbrulee) and tonya (psychomoms). i tried each version and liked best marion's and tonya's. i used my scraps for practice and i made a few pieces already. you can even embellish the flowers much like what i did with the first one i made. hopefully i can use these in my upcoming layouts and a create a few more.
do try making one of these and be inspired to start creating for your scrapbooks.
