Aren’t these fabulous! I made them from scraps of fabric (organza, satin and Dupion silk) and they were not very hard at all.
You could make them too. The video of how to do it is here from Heidi Swapp live TV.
Idea 105: Dab your plain white or cream flowers with ink pads to give them a lift and co-ordinate another colour on your page.
But this next one I went CRAZY with my white paint. This layout is using the Pink Paislee ‘About a girl range’. The reason I used SO much white paint (and sanding) on this one because I just don’t like the overwhelming bright pages much anymore, so I softened it up heaps.
Idea 106: Use the plastic stretchy bag that oranges come in to paint over.
Idea 107: Make a painted border using Crafters workshop template. Trace around some of the pattern with a black archival pen.
Idea 108: Stamp the paper branches with white paint to soften them and take away some of the brightness.
Idea 109: Before you remove the chipboard letters from the sheet, paint over them roughly, let the paint dry completely, then run your black archival pen around the edges of the letters to give a black outline.
And one more from the Bella Blvd ‘Estate sale’ range.
This one I just had to scrap because they were so pleased with their effort of making their room beautiful again and cleaning up their shelves without even being asked. Besides, it was a rare opportunity to actually get a photo of it all cleaned up.
Now I’m off to make some more flowers – can’t help myself, Its fun!
