We are continuing along with our flower theme this week!
One of the absolute easiest ways of creating flower embellishments for your scrapbook pages is to use a patterned paper with a variety of flowers on it. A lot of times you can get a kit of papers that might have plain, striped, dotted and floral papers. I don’t often use the floral papers as backgrounds or for matting because I find them a little busy. But by simply cutting the flowers from the paper and layering them you can have embellishments that work perfectly with the rest of the papers you are using on a layout.
Here is a video that demonstrates this simple technique. (Notes: This video is aimed at very beginner scrappers and the host tends to speak very slowly, but you get a really good idea of the possibilities using this technique.)
How easy is that? A tip: I find that I like to use glue or paper adhesive in between the flower layers and then add a pop dot to the raise only the final layer. That way my entire embellishment is not TOO bulky but still has some nice dimension. Give this easy technique a try the next time you use floral paper!
Tomorrow we’ll have a new page plan and a sample layout to go with it.
