Hi there! Tracey here and today I'm going to show you how I created these "Tattered Blooms", using the Tim Holtz "Tattered Florals" die and the new Marion Smith Bloom tool!
Here's what you need to gather:
4 large flowers
2 medium flowers
some stamens (these are from the April kit)
a circle of any paper(this will be your base)
Mist both sides of all your flowers.
Let them dry until lightly damp or
hit them with the heat gun if you have no patience like me.
Gently tear or cut off the petals of the larger flower.
Set your petal as shown with the fatter end covering the concave opening.
Put the top of the Bloom tool into the bottom and twist.
If you do not have the petal covering the opening you may experience a most unpleasant nails on a chalkboard type sensation when you twist.
You'll want to avoid that for sanity's sake.
When you open your tool,you will find a nicely curved little petal.
Pop it out and repeat with all your petals.
Glue your curved petals to your circle base.
Overlap and arrange to your liking.
Now take your small flowers and lay it across the bottom (concave) part of the tool.
Close tool and twist.
You will have bowl shaped little blooms.
Tear the bloom as shown above.
Fold in and glue into a small buttercup shaped bloom as above.
Do the same with all the small flowers.
Stack your small blooms inside your large blooms and glue together.
Pierce the center all the way through.
Insert your stamens through the center hole and bend back stems to secure.
Ta-da! Your bloom is done!
Feel free to add definition with ink,Stickles,beads or whatever you can imagine!
I added gesso and another stamen to this one
and clustered it with coordinating green burlap flowers-all from the April kit.
