I have a new favorite medium--old texts. I went to half price books and for the bargain price of $3 I found this old dictionary full of illustrations and of course, text. I have been pulling pages out and cutting, distressing and embellishing. Considering that one sheet of scrapbook paper would be around a buck, I consider this to be a great value.
On to my flowers....The flower is pretty simple. I cut 6 scalloped circles of text paper and 1 scalloped circle of card stock. I used pearl ex in hairspray on my text pieces.
Once the circles dried I folded them first in half.
then slightly over half (like 2/3 but it's not an exact science...
then fold back the edge of over lap and repeat for the other side.
Do this will all six circles and then adhere them to the cardstock circle.
When you have them all adhered you can pick a center. Buttons, brads, gems, other flowers, pretty much anything you can think of could be used.
I hope you liked this simple little flower. I have been using it a lot. It can be adapted with solid circles or bigger circles too.
