Hi, It's Joanne Wardle here again with another quick and easy project. I'm really enjoying playing with the new releases from february and this month I've made a quick card using Lin Brown's stencils and paints, and an easy technique for paper flowers.
Then it came to making the flowers. To do this just tear thin strips of paper from the painted sheet. Fold down one end and then wrap the long end around this folding it with each twist, so that both sides of the paper are shown. This will create a spiral as shown, which will need the layers gluing together before gluing to card. I hope this picture helps this to make sense. If not, then look on youtube at how to make ribbon roses, it's the same technique.
Glue these to the card.
At this point I realised that I had made a couple of small marks on my card, so I went and added a few more dots with the stencil and paint to disguise them create a background!!
I hope you enjoyed this project and I'll be back soon.
A huge thank to Joanne from PaperArtsy. The composition here is wonderful with the text overlaying the leaves in the centre, a really nice little cluster of elements. We also like the subtle changes in paint coverage, with the top leaves being more dominant over the less solid bottom leaves, small differences that can add a whole lot of dimension.
