Happy Friday to you! I have a tutorial/tip to share with you today. This is a Thrifty Thursday technique I did for Urban Anthology using the August Tea for Two kit (3 left).
This is a really fun, shabby technique. Have you ever bought chipboard shapes and thought to yourself, "I wish there was more than one of this flower?"
Or . . . "I really love this chipboard mini-album, but I just don't make mini-albums that often."
Well, then I do have an idea for you!
I received this cute Maya Road flower mini-album in a kit I purchased. I'm not really a mini-album kind of gal, so I decided to use the flowers as accents on my page!
I cut off one sheet from the album and then soaked the chipboard flower in water for a minute.
Next I pulled the layers apart, so I had several flowers. Maya Road album pages are particularly thick, so I was able to get FIVE multi-layered flowers from ONE page!!! WOW!!!
Next I scrunched them up and shaped them and dried them with my heat gun. Here is what they look like.
I painted two of them with White Distress Paint (one is in the top left of the previous photo) and then coated them with a layer of Hi Ho Silver Blingz by Shimmerz.
Layer some other flowers and embellishments on top, and you have a darling flower embellishment for several pages! Yippeee!!! Love that!
And here is my page with my flower accent! Have fun! Just think of the possibilities!!! Cool!
