My2Angels - Flower Frenzy

This week at My2Angels we are showing you some different ways to use your paper blossoms.  Here are a few ideas on how to give new life to paper blossoms.

Creating some texture on your flowers by embossing them with Embossing Folders and swiping them with Ink.

You can stamp directly on to your flowers with your stamps.  A smaller overall pattern looks best.

Use glimmer mist on your blossoms to colour them to match your LO.  You can spray the whole flower or use splats for a more concentrated effect.

You can also use your flowers as a mask with your misting to create a fab background.  Use a fineliner pen to outline your images to create a little more dimension.

    Using Bakers Twine and a needle to stitch onto your flowers.

Cutting your Blossoms in half and using them as a border.

You can jazz them up by using various centres like Brads, Resin Flower, Metal Flowers and Pins.

Various mediums can also be used like Kindyglitz, Crackle Paint, Diamond Dust and Liquid Pearls.

  A few more ideas for centres, charms, cutting up a Felt Ribbon to use as a layer, a Mini Rose and scrunching a smaller blossom and adding Stamens for a bit of dimension.  You can also roll the edges of your flowers and add some Leaves.

These are just some of the ways to jazz up your paper blossoms, the ideas are endless.  If you were wanting to purchase any of these items just check out the links and they will take you straight to the item at Tracy's store.

Keep an eye out as tomorrow I will be posting a tutorial on how to jazz up your flowers with Baker's Twine.
