Paper Flower Tutorial ~ Websters Pages & Glue Arts!

I thought I would share a tutorial for a flower I've used on my layouts over this past year.  I've shared some information on how to make water distressed blooms but I've gotten emails over this past year saying that some of you don't have the flowers turn out the same as mine. So I thought it would be best to actually show you each step in a video.  I also thought I would share a little tip with you all on an awesome adhesive I've found that works really well for adhering flowers and embellishments to your projects.  Glue Arts 1/2" adhesive squares...super strong!
I used the Websters Pages Western Romance collection to make up the above page.  I love that buttery yellow colour in the paper and bloomers!  Here are some close-up pic's of the layout and the blooms I'm going to show you how to make....


Just click on the video clip below and watch how quickly and easily these blooms come together...
I hope this video will help you all in tweaking those blooms to get them to look the way you want them to! ....This week the Websters Pages design team and the Glue Arts design team have teamed up together to present some exciting and beautiful projects.  So be sure to check out the Websters Pages Blog and the Glue Arts Blog throughout the week to be inspired!  Thanks for stopping by, ...and let me know how your blooms come out!

Dear Gabrielle,

You are such an amazing artist - your scrapbook pages are pieces of art. You are so inspiring. I attempted the flowers you have in this tutorial and even though they are nearly as lovely as yours, I was still very pleased. Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing your secrets! I love your work and will continue to follow.
Thank you again,

Debbie
