Just look at this cute flower I made with a zillion lil circles....ok...so maybe not a zillion...but it sure was alot! LOL

I used Tim Holtz distressed ink techniques. They really give a cool effect! You swipe the ink pad on a piece of transparency, then use a mini mister sprayer and mist the ink with water, then slid your paper through the ink. If you need fast drying time, use your crafty heat gun to dry your paper. I then curled the lil circles around the shaft of my craft knife, then set out to glue them all together, added a decorative brad...and waa laa! a cute lil flower!

I think I need to start making some videos...what do you think?

This is gorgeous...just a couple of questions....what size are your petals? And did you use a base to tack the petals onto and if so what size did you use for that as well....

I love this it is so pretty

Shannon, the petals are made from 1/2 inch circles. I did use a base, It is a 2 inch circle. Begin on the outter edge and work your way inward. The overall size is about 3 inches. You can adjust the base to your needs.
