Art Foam Flower Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have been playing with some art foam, and I came up with some  different ways of creating flowers using one die.

These three flowers were created using only two petals. But by making one alteration, three different flowers were created.

The above flower uses the largest petal from the die, die cut three times. It was shaped by scrunching the tops and embellished by using stamens in the centre.

The final two flowers use the smaller petal from the die. Their construction is the same except for the shaping of the petals. Another variation of flower from DIY Flora Gerbera die.

Below is a video tutorial explaining how each of these flowers was made.

Once you have created these beautiful flowers, it’s always wonderful to incorporate them into your projects.

3D Dream Big Frame Decor by Jowilna Nolte

I created this fun dimensional frame using this gorgeous range – Hide and Seek. Perfect for little girls and boys to insert treasures into the frame
adding to the dimensional look.

The little fox head stamp was coloured using Metallic Gel Pens and a layer of dimensional glaze added as a finishing touch.

Stamping directly onto the background below and above a vinyl sentiment cut on my Silhouette machine.

The leaves arrange on top of each other using a 3D silicone adhesive to keep the dimension.

I love how this frame turned out – perfect to make any room a magical place.

I initially started my project with just the hot air balloon, then I decided to alter some wooden blocks that I picked up from Bunnings. The paper pad has so many beautiful images that you can fussy cut. I added some alpha stickers to complete the set. This set would look great in a little boys room.
