Don't you love flowers???

Don't you just love flowers? I do and I love making them. This little flower I am holding is from the Cricut cartridge Flower Shoppe. Check out the center! This is why I held it close to the camera for you to see. This cartridge has dozens of flower layers and you can choose how you wish to put your flowers together. The centers are cut then rolled around a dowel or chopstick. Then you glue the layers together. But the fun is choosing how you want the petals to look. This is only one of many combinations. I added a bead for the center and then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist in Forever Red (a Ranger product). Click on the picture to see it larger and you'll see the effect of the Mist. And if course you can make them in any size you want. You can use graduated sizes as I did here or you can make many layers of one size for a very full three dimensional flower. This is one cartridge that is going to get a lot of use in my studio. Have a great week everyone.
