Lazy Dayzies...Tutorial for Scrap That Kit Club Guest Design Spot.

I haven't  done a flower tutorial in a while. I figured it was time!! I ordered a BUNCH of flower dies not to long ago, and are finally dipping into the stash and creating. Mixing and matching is a wonderful thing!! The possibilities are endless!!...


 Product List
Glue
Ink Blender
Ink of your choice
Kraft Paper
Card Stock color of your choice for flowers
 Sizzix Bigz Die - Flower, Black-Eyed Susan  
  Stylus and pad set (I use McGill)
Art Glitter Good Earth. Elements Earth Textures or Flower soft
    Die-Namics die : Botanical Beauty
 

Cut one large and one small flower from your Sizzix die, Cut 2 of the medium size middles from your Die-Namic die.

 Ink the edges of your flowers using the blending foam applicator for a soft look.


 On the back side of your flowers, use the stylus on the pad press down using a circular motion on each petal until they curl upwards.


Do the same for the middles.

  Now turn your flowers over right side up and you should see the texture you created for realistic flowers.
 Using adhesive of your choice,  layer your flowers by placing the smaller one over the larger one staggering your petals. Then add your 2 middles also staggering the tiny petals.



Add some adhesive to the middle and sprinkle a generous amount of Elements or Flower Soft pressing down a bit to get the particles to sink into the glue. Tap off any excess.


Here is your finished Lazy Dayzie. You can add leaves underneath or cluster them together as I did in the photo below.
On a couple of these flowers, I added an extra (3rd layer) flower layer to make the flowers fuller. It is all a matter of taste and design. Look on my blog soon, for the finished layout I used these daisies on!!


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. You can substitute any similar dies to achieve the same effect. I will continue to experiment with mixing and matching all of my wonderful dies!!. Till next time, Happy Flower making!
