A Bloomin' Wall

I used some flower die cuts I got a couple of months ago, one was a Tim Holtz design and the other a Cuttlebug die. While I have a cutting system I like, the dies come in handy for using up paper that might otherwise get tossed.

I experimented with teal and burgundy colors and a variety of patterns. I used a small embellishment in the center of most of them and used adhesive putty to adhere it to the wall. Layering allows a number of combinations within the color scheme and adds variety. With the vast choices in papers the options are many.  Depending on the size of the flower, I use a pencil or crochet hook handle to give a little curl and dimension to the petals. And these flower can be used on a variety of projects - boxes, frames, gift tags. bottles and more!
