Here’s Ro with several beautiful layouts and a tutorial!
One of the hallmarks in my scrapbook pages is delicacy and romance. This is something that I do automatically, as it is my style. I think we definitely pass on our personality to our pages!
One element that stands out in romantic pages are flowers. So today I’ll give you some tips of how to play with them on a page.
Well, that was easy, because the roles of Webster’s Pages in itself is pure romance! Here I mixed flowers including patterned paper, bloom ribbon and two handmade felt rosettes.
I also like to customize the ribbon, applying them on a layer of plaster, or filling them with small pearls.
Another thing I really like to do is mix ready-made flowers such as Prima, with my own flowers.
You may often not have exactly the flower in color you need, so, make your own, them mix them in with pre-made, manufactured flowers.
To make these flowers I used the EK Punch-Retro Flowers in 2 sizes: Large and mini
- For each flower you will need 2 small and 1 large flower punch
- You will need spray paint that is similar to the color of the paper you use to make your flower
Step 1 – Separate 3 flowers as the image below, and spray paint them, trying to moisten them completely.
Step 2 – While the flower is still wet, sink it on a foundation of EVA with the help of the brush handle. Repeat this with all the flowers.
Step 3 – With assistance from the tip of a toothpick, wrap the flower petals.
Step 4 – Once you’ve worked the edges of your flowers, you should a larger flower with rolled edges, small flower only sunk in EVA, and other small flower with wrapped edges.
They should be pasted together in that order, with a drop of glue in the core.
Step 5 – Once glued, it looks like this: with a pearl in the center.
I have another example that I made recently, where Prima Flowers and handmade flowers were mixed, using the same EK-Punches. The difference in these flowers is that I did not moisten with ink or wrap the edges. For these flowers, it would be ideal to use a heavier cardstock.
