5 Ways to Alter Premade Flowers by Jodi Baune

Hello! My Creative Scrapbook design team member Jodi Baune is sharing some awesome flower-altering tips today featuring our September Creative kit!

Here's Jodi:

Hello! I want to share with you 5 ways to alter the pre-made flowers found in the September Album Kit from My Creative Scrapbook!

I used my flowers on this layout of my precious niece and nephew welcoming their cousin home!

These are the flowers before I altered them...beautiful as is, but I like to see what I can do to enhance them!

1. I dry brushed the petals with gesso for lighter, distressed flower.

2. Using black ink and a gorgeous, flourish stamp from Prima (found in an earlier kit from My Creative Scrapbook) I stamped a pattern unto the flowers.

Didn't they turn out beautiful?!

3. Using my scissors, I sliced each petal three or four times stopping near the end of the petal.

Staggering the petals, I layered two flowers together and scrunched them with my fingertips.

4. I lightly misted the ends of the petals with water. While the petals were still wet, I twisted the ends of the petals.

Once dry, I added a dab of liquid glue in the center and added micro beads from my stash.

5. I spritzed the flowers with mist....I used Turquoise Smooch.

Once the flower were dry, I formed the ends of the petals with my stylis.

Here they are after the stylis tool.

Tie a knot in the end of the yellow ribbon.

Staggering the petals, I glued two large flowers, and a small flower together. I glued the knot on for the flower center.

Here she is at another angle!

I would to see how you use your flowers! Share you link here and I'll be sure to stop and leave you some love!

Thanks for taking time to stop by!!
