Flocking tutorial is now ready.

Flock on a stamped image

A new reader of my blog submitted this comment with a request for a tutorial.

Wow – would love to see a YouTube tutorial on your project. Love the papers, and all the pages are gorgeous. You did an EXCELLENT job with the flocking. I recently flocked a baby blanket image for a mini album, but the result was so awful I ended up not even using it. I used a wet glue and it dried uneven, lumpy, hard, and simply unpleasant. Wonder if using an adhesive like you did would have been better. Anyway, your creation looks great. Love it!

In an effort to help Linda see her baby blanket piece for her mini album take center stage I created this video.  I have tried my best to explain the process with tips about the proper glue to use and application of the flock.  The video shows how to use Flock on a stamped image.  The process is exactly the same (minus the stamping) when applied to a graphic image on design papers.

Hope this helps you out Linda, and thanks for the request.

Happy New Year

I am attempting to conquer my fear of flowers.  2012 I am determined to make these things my FRIEND instead of my FOE.  Are you up for a challenge?

Go to your craft space and find your Prima flowers, or other loose flowers.

I’ve found a photo tutorial on working with these flowers.

In my Google search for using paper flowers I stumbled upon this blog.  Following her directions on these larger loose paper flowers I was able to create these.   The yellow and orange flower with the pearl center.

Lynn, I am loving the paper  you used on this card.  It is all so thick and stiff.  I especially like the gold foil snowman 😀

If there is anyone out there that has a favorite tutorial on making flowers let me know where to find it.  This flower challenge is open to anyone that wants to give it a try.

What you will have to do…..Take pictures of your flower creations and how you used them.  Upload the pictures to your blog along with anything you want to say about how you made them and used them.  Go to your finished post.  Up in the link line of your browser highlight your blog post  – SPECIFICALLY the link to your flower creation – and copy that link.  Then come back to this blog post and go to the COMMENTS section of THIS post.  Paste your link in the Comments section.  That way I can go out and have a look at your stunning creation 😀
