Sneak peek at my paper flowers
So I've been watching all these really cool videos on YouTube about making your own paper flowers, and so my daughter goes out and buys a new Sizzix Big Kick and some flower dies and well, you know what comes next. Oh and I forgot to tell you that I've already located an old children's dictionary (thank you Emily!) and saved an old phone book in anticipation of this golden opportunity. For the last week I've been putting together the pieces by spraying with homemade glimmer mist and walnut ink, scrunching and gluing and whatever else suited my fancy and tonight.... tada.... you get a sneak peek at some of the flowers I created! Drum roll puleeease.....
The pic above is darker because the flash didn't go off.
The one below is more true to color. Some of them are done with the spritzer thing, so they're lighter anyway. The darker ones are coated with walnut ink.
