Textured Flower

hi everyone!  This is my first tutorial for scrap that!  I hope you enjoy it!

I love to make flowers!  And although I am not the first one to make his flower (I saw one at Wendy G's blog) but I have changed it to make it more my own.

First you need to gather your supplies
die cut flowers - one larger, 2 medium, 2 small (I have done it with two different flower shapes from my cricut) on untextured cardstock
molding paste
inks, glimmer mist, alcohol inks, liquid pearls, perfect pearls...some kind of colorant
a pearl or center
hot glue gun & glue

next you will apply the molding paste with your finger to make sure you have lots of bumps and texture.  Let dry (I left them overnight)

after they are dry is where the fun comes in and your creativity....I used two different mediums

this one I inked

this one I used the smooch that is included in the March kit

I then sprayed the first one with a little bit of light pink glimmer mist

and because I wanted both these flowers on the same page I used some pink liquid pearls on both

now you can use whatever colorants you would creative

when they are dry, fold back the ends of each petal like this

so it will look like this

and like this when all the petals are folded

now make an 'O' with your hand and put the largest flower on top then push through your hand

your flower will look like this

continue with all your flowers

on the smallest one, glue a pearl or a center into it

start layering your flower gluing them together from smallest to largest alternating your petals

and here they are done

the inked one

and the one with smooch

thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your textured flowers!
