Good morning! It's Monday again...the weekend always flies by sooo fast, but I did manage to finish a LO and a tutorial over the weekend. I was inspired to try and create a flower to match the Prima Guava Peony. Using what supplies that I had, this is the closest I could get, but I loved the finish product, so I'll stick with it!!
Supplies: Sizzix Bigz Die Flower Layers 3, mousepad, glue, 8 petal punch, scissors, scalloped circles, and embossing tools, flower center (pearl). I love these embossing tools, they are double-ended with 6 different sizes and a cushioned finger grip. I got mine at The artist club, which was the cheapest price I could find. I highly recommend getting a set, if you love to make your own flowers. They are wonderful in so many ways!
To make the flowers, you will need staggering sizes of layers. For mine, I used 2 of the largest flower on the Bigz die, 1 med and 1 small flower also from the Bigz die. I used a 2" and 1 1/2" scalloped circle, and 4 1" 8 petal daisies.
Once you have shaped each petal, then run your embosser around the middle of the flower layer to draw all the petals up slightly.
Here is what the layers will look like when finished. On the 4 1", you will curl bring the petals up tighter on each one.
