Vellum Flowers

In my latest layout, I've tried to use some vellums to create a more sophisticated flower. I've read it in some forums that quite a number of scrappers aren't comfortable in using vellums. Actually, vellums are great in many ways. One of them are using it to create flowers. It will create a soft look on your layout.

Simply follow the steps below to create the flower on my latest layout title "The Stonehenge Sisters" in my others gallery




1. Cut out a square vellum and draw a simple corner design on one corner. If you would liked to use a corner punch, then you can skip the drawing step.



2. Fold the vellum into halfs and then into quarters. Cut out the design in the corner. With this you will get an identical design for all four corners. You can also use a corner punch in this step too.



3. Fold your vellum again and this time draw some "fish bones" design on it and cut along those lines.



4. Fold open the "fish bones" cuts outwards. Later, repeat the steps above with a smaller square vellum and add some details on it using stampings, inking or doodling. You can add as many layers as you wish.

The vellum flower add some softness to my layout which is full of dark colours. Hope you all like it and give this a try!
