Flower tutorial..

Morning everyone..

We want to share a new tutorial today.

Our DT member Tina Teasdale has once again been busy over in our Facebook group.
Tina is our altered Arts Crafter and for this weeks DT day she has created a flower tutorial.
Here it is.. Enjoy..

Here is a few things that I will use to create a selection of flowers.

Flower 1
 Roughly tear 4 circles slightly differing in size from your selected paper & spritz them with a little water.

 Fold or screw the circles up and leave to dry. Drying can be speeded up by using a heat gun. Take each piece in a pair of tweezers when using heat gun to prevent burns.

 When dry gently open out each section.

 Put a small amount of glue in the middle of each section & glue together inside each other. 
All done! xx

Flower 2
Using the papers you have selected punch out or tear circles. Ive used a 1" scallop edge punch

 Tear or cut each circle into a spiral, Ive torn these.

 Starting from the outer edge, roll the spiral until it reaches the end, put a blob of glue in the centre and using a pair of tweezers expand them out if you wish.

Here are the finished flowers.

 Heres a very basic quick card using the flowers I've shown. 
All of the paper used is from the Spring In Bloom collection. available in the 

And that is it from us today
Hope you enjoyed.
