Dollz I've taken a few days off from scrapping to improve my photo skills!
Now, I'm back with dozens of awesome pictures just waiting to be memorialized on a page!

This is another picture taken at Dow Gardens.

I am just loving the Picasa program for editing photos. I've told so many people about it and they have all got it now!

The colors in the photo worked perfectly with the K & Co line Sea Glass. These papers are nautical in theme and have a pallet of blues and greens.
I did quite a bit of inking on this one to help make the different layers noticeable. The letters are Fresh Paint.

The flower is handmade by me using the Sea Glass paper. I used a hot glue gun to put it together.

Start by cutting a small 1 inch circle, any paper will do! Cut a couple different colored strips of paper 1 inch wide. Pleat the paper all the way down. Decide how large your flower needs to be by forming a circle with the strip of paper. The bottom layer of the flower does not need to be tightly formed(This method requires stacking several strips of pleated paper on top of each other). Attach your pleated circle to the the cut circle paper using the glue gun. Repeat this step using the next color of paper and making the circle a little bit smaller than the first. Stack until you have the flower as full as you want it. Attach a button or charm to the flower for a center.

These are fun flowers to make and can be used on cards as well as pages! Play around with these in different colors or by inking the edges for different effects!

Thanks for stopping by and come back real soon!
