June's Tip/Technique

I've asked the Design Team to come up with some Techniques to help you use the products you have or make you think outside the box.

Here is June's tip. Check back for more tips throughout March.

Here's a really simple ways to make a flower to coordinate with the colors of your layout. If you, like me have tons of scrap papers lying around, you can give them a new lease of life using this fun technique.

Pick 2 pieces of pattern paper.
Colors can either complement or contrast one another.

Draw 1 large and 1 small circle on 1 piece of paper
and draw a medium circle on the pther sheet of paper.
The circles do not have to be perfect. Ovals are really OK.

You should now have 3 circles of descending sizes.

Taking the largest circle, use your fingers to
roll the edges over. Do not be afraid, just get in
there and do it.

Do the same of the rest of the circles.

Next stack all 3 circles together.

Add a button, chipboard or even a brad in the
center and your flower is ready for your layout.
Make sure you glue all the flowers layers down
unless you are using a brad to hold them together.

Here is an example of how you can make use of the
flower we just made. I just love all that texture it added
to the page.

Have fun.
