Hello once again fellow scrappers & happy Hump Day! Today I'm bringing to you yet another brief flower tutorial. I guess I've been on a 'handmade flower' spree lately for some reason. It may be that Autumn is finally just around the corner which is my favorite season! These flowers do make a nice addition to Autumn themed pages & projects--at least that's how I would use them.
I named these after the marigold flower. I think that's the flower they most resemble. From what I saw online, the majority of marigolds are yellow/orange in color. I made a purple one as you can see here just for kicks! Hey who is to say we have to be so exact right?
Ok onto the tutorial...
Time to adhere your last 3 layers. The top three layers need to be cupped tightly as shown here prior to adhering. You are building your flower up. So you want a 'fluffy' look
Once done you can finish shaping your flower. Usually when I put my flowers together they get lopsided, squished, etc as I adhere one layer on top of the other. Once done you can re-shape your flower again--fluff the layers, re-curl some of your petals etc.
Hope some of you found this tutorial useful! Have a great rest of the week.
