Hi everyone- the "flower queen" has arrived!! lol. I do love flowers, mostly I love to experiment! For the layout I did, I actually printed up some digital papers that I loved so much from Kiki Halbert ("Burst into Spring")
I printed out several of the papers that are in this collection, using a medium weight matte paper.
I made a pinwheel which is super easy and cute. Cut a square- I used 2 in and 1 1/2 inches, then I cut at each corner about 1/3 of the way to the center. You can cut any size you want, depending on how big you want your flower.
Since this is single sided paper, I sprayed glimmer mist on the white side.
Pinwheels are very easy to make. Just wrap alternating corners around a pencil so that it curls. I also used a heat gun which helped hold the curl- but be very careful- it is hot!!! I added buttons as centers.
Here are close ups of one of the pinwheels on the layout:
I used Bazzill dotted swiss as the background- so yummy!! I added ribbon and used staples for decoration. To finish the layout, I took a picture, uploaded it to my computer and digitally added text to the layout.("sweet" is Pink Paislee chipboard) That is so easy and you don't have to worry about your handwriting if it isn't the best. I love that!!
