Flowers - Class Prompt/Assignment

FLOWERS.
~sigh~
I was happy when I saw Friday's prompt for Shimelle's class, "Something from {Almost} Nothing." We were to use flowers from our stash and to acknowledge the good things that surround us. I chose a couple of photos taken in a field near our northern property where we camp (sometimes just the two of us, other times with friends and family). The photos just take me back there...



I have been on a bit of a roll with making flowers lately. I made a bunch of them over the past week while I was off work. (Ironic now that I think of it; I was supposed to be using what I had on hand, not making more to add to the stash! Oh well. I had fun.)

Anyway! I decided to combine some handmade elements and mix in some flowers I've had on hand for a long time. I used brads for the centers on some, buttons and rhinestones in others.

I was having so much fun constructing these flowers that I made a few too many to go on the page. This is my idea of some yummy leftovers! :o]

Good times.

Any chance of a step by step lesson in flower making? These are so pretty and I love the thought of being able to make my own when the colour I need is not in the collection I have!

You should totally add those to your etsy shop too, they are all so cute!!!! Such good color combos

So I am starting to sound like a broken record here... We need to do those for an afternoon crop too.. LOL so much to do, so little time!!

Love them ♥

Those leftovers are delicious!!!
I agree that you should bag them and sell them. I'm having a little trouble on the flower prompt, but your l/o has inspired me a bit.
Thanks,
Rinda

Yes, definitely put them in your etsy shop (or they'd make a very acceptable givea away!!). They have a lot more "heart" than the bought ones. Another beautiful looking page..I especially love the touches of blue.

Love your hand made versions - and your layered up embellishments. Very pretty.
I like making my own flower embellishments too - with bought and home made flowers.
Great layout!

Stunning flowers and a another lovely page! I'd love to know how you make them too, they are really fab.
