Glassine Kraft Paper
Finally! I'm back! Actually, I never left, but my blog seemed to. I was able to view my blog, but could not figure out how to post new information. I am not quite sure how I figured it out now, but I will worry about that later. I have been creating and have tons of samples to show, so let's get started. I just got back from a fabulous scrapbook weekend with my friends. They has asked me to teach a few "make n' takes" over the weekend. One of the classes I decided to do was a technique flower class. I wanted to show different ways to used different media to create fun flowers. Over the next few days, I will show you what I did. The first sample today is made from kraft glassine paper by Tim Holtz. The paper comes in 5x7 sheets (small stack of 36). For this sample, I die cut flowers from the Stampin' Up Fun flowers die. I then embossed them with a cuddlebug folder to get the swiss dots (or further below, the swirls). Last I used a cute Stampin' Up brad to attach the flower together. You can use a Stazon ink to ink the edges for a little more of a distressed look.
