3rd Thurs Tips & Technques - FLOWERS....

Have you stuggled using flowers...... Don't like using them specially on boy layouts.....

I LOVE flowers and just about all my layouts will have on it in some way or form...

Today i have put together some samples of what you can do with them. Also this may help how I group my embellishments together. I hope these inspire you to use flowers more often than you normally would...

Flowers can come inmany different forms of materials, eg, paper, embossed paper, material, felt, silk, crocheted and so many more!..

HERE are some ideas... hope to see what you can do with flowers and upload your projects to our gallery.....http://www.scrapncraftwitht.com.au/gallery/

Tanyah's TIP:....FOLD YOUR FLOWERS IN HALF........this will also save you $$$'s as well and have the other half for another layout. I tend to do this a really lot these days!

This above is in half but have also cut a paper swirl into the flower and placed some journalling on it. Also placed behind the silk flower is a kasiercraft chip flower.

This above sample i have placed a smaller flower in half in the center and found a nice center embellishemtn to fit perfectly in the center of the small flower. Along with lots of bling.

The above is a large paper flower that has been doodled with a felt pen and layered with other flowers and buttons in the center. Also is used is glossy accents to make the flowers shine more!

The above flower has been stiched on alternate pettles and the TITLE at the base of the half flower.

The above has a few layers of different coloured flowers (this is for a boy layout). Some pettles have been stiched and the title at the top of these flowers had been hand stiched together.

The above i have layers a few smaller flowers ontop of the silk flowers and placed in the center some covered heart chipboards and dressed it up some more with bling.

Above placed 2 differnt silk flowers together and hand sewn each pettle. Than place the TITLE on top of the flower.

Above again placed a few flowers together and then placed the bling on the pettles in a line. Also drawn some white gel pen lines on the smaller flower and a tiny flower in the center with a bling finished center peice.

Above we have the bling following around an half circle stiched zig zag line with a rubed on center peice. Also under the photo is half flowers allong one edge can give a lovely affect.

Above using pattened flowers along with felt and paper all in the one layout. Also creating your own center peices with felt and tuel.

Above we have added acetate over the top of flowers and writing your journalling along with a rubed on image

Above we have the first flower in half but the red one as normal with a stamped clock in the centre and stiching around the clock, Also a hand made embellishment and a few other bits to add to the cluster.

Above we have an outline filled with beads and then the centre filled with a different colorued bead...This took forever to do but with great results.

Above using a cluster of flowers mixed with pearl centres and bling flourishes. Also rubed on butterflys and stapled where desired.

Dye Cut flowers, here i have rubbed on different words and made a swirl with pearls in the centre.

Above I used a heidi swapp mask along with twinkling h2O's, and some beads for the swirly centres.

Above try creating a round edge of flowers with a peice of hidden journalling tucked behind it!

Using paper lace and paper flowers and adding bling and bling crystal brads in the centres.

Above creating flourishes with your flowers and adding finishing touches with pearls. Also it looks lovely glazing your flowers and adding a little of crystal glitter to them.

Above add a garden look alike to your layouts, this was created using felt and layering a few different flowers together

Above, use the flowers as part of your title. as is the 'o' above.

Above use pattern paper and cut it out to create your own garden like affect.

above, cover chipboard flower with felt and palce smaller flowers in the background, This was fun to dress up making my own felt owl, stapling the bella butterfly and using brillance ink for the stem.

Above is decorated using flocking in the centre of the flower and pebbles and glossy accents for the outline, i loved this look and how it turned out!


"i love using flowers - not that i do it alot but if i can use it on a layout for my boys then it's often a single flower attached with a small coloured brad or glued down and finished off with a button...................By.Leanne Stamatellos

'When doing digital scrapping, remember you can change the colour of any flowers you have downloaded. These flowers were all very simply created by changing the hue. You can create a flower that perfectly matches your LO (original flower by genia beana).".......................By .. Kylie Abel.

"Flowers make the perfect embellishment. They can really dress up a page.I use them on all themes of pages, even boys pages.

I love putting bling, cut outs from patterned paper, chipboard, and my favourite...buttons in the centres. With flowers, you can fold them in half and staple them, put a smaller flower in the centre...whatever you can think of.

The list is endless!

Experiment and see what you can come up with??"........................by..... Michelle Jamieson.
