Making your own flowers

Have you seen the new released Prima flowers?? They are gorgeous!

Prima had the bright idea of incorporating the layering and vintage look that many artisans have been using on their altered art and handmade items for a long time in their NEW FLOWERS. They are using fabric, beads, tulle, felt, ribbon and other notions to layer their flowers. They look so yummy and you just need to get some!

Oh, wait a minute! That's right you don't NEED to buy some, you can MAKE some! SO if you are short on resources or just practicing being a good steward of what you have then you should use what you got!! I bet you got some beads, fabric, ribbons that you can turn into gorgeous flowers in no time!!

Here are some photos of recent flowers I have created in my items just using what I had. I used the Prima flowers I had in my stash and added my own handmade ones, pieces of tulle, ribbon, doily and other stuff to them. I will be talking about some of these techniques, so if you would like to learn them, please come back. Sign up for my newsletter or follow the blog to know when I post.

Enjoy the photos and have a great weekend!! oh, stop HERE for a chance to win some Blog Candy!!
