What is there not to love about this darling layout. This was created by Guiseppa Gubler. A Big Thank You goes out To Guiseppa for sharing her adorable design. You won’t want to miss out on her other beautiful creations so be sure to visit her at My Creations.
This layout was created with Authentique Collections. I love this page, and I think it is perfectly okay to add flowers to a masculine collection. Today I am going to go in a different direction and give you some instructions on how to make these gorgeous flowers, instead of the layout. I feel the flowers are really what makes this layout, and the flowers will give a handmade, personal touch to your project.
You Will Need:
- 3 two inch flowers from a flower punch
- 4 one inch flowers from a flower punch
- Mouse pad
- Glitter Glue or glitter
- 3 different sized pens or pencils with rounded ends
In this layout the flowers were cut from Authentique Strong Collection. Ink the edges of all the flowers using Dew Drops by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko. Mist the Flowers with water (use a light coat so they don’t tear)Press the centers of the flowers on a mouse pad or foam mat with one of your rounded pens or pencils.
Take the center of your flowers and wrap the petals around the end of your largest pen or pencil. Make sure they are all the way dry before moving onto the next step. This is how they should look.
When your flowers are all dry, take one of the smallest flowers and roll it between your thumb and index finger, creating a bud. Open the three largest flowers and one of the small ones, don’t open all the way. You will want to glue all of the small flowers into each other and then all of the large flowers. Make sure you offset your petals to have a fuller look.
After the glue has dried, press the large flowers into the mat with a pen or pencil. Glue the two flowers together. When that is dry pull back the petals very carefully.
Add a little more to the flowers by bending each petal, this will give it a more realistic look.
Adding greenery under your flower, cut a Gerbera Daisy (I did this from my cricket), ink and bend them like you did the flower petals.
Adding the glitter glue or glitter adds the final touch to the flower and makes it really stand out. On this flower Stephanie Barnard’s Sprinkles by Color Box was used. Just add some glue to the tips of the petals and then sprinkle it on. How beautiful is this!
Here are pictures of the finished flowers. Look how stunning they look on this layout.
Have a wonderful day crafting!
