You Make Me Smile with mini flower tutorial

Today's layout is an old layout which is published in Scrap-Info, a Russian magazine. This layout features BoBunny and Clear Scraps. I've used several mixed media techniques on this layout and I've also done a short tutorial on how to make these easy and fun flowers. Here are some close-ups on it.

To add colors to the acrylic circle border by Clear Scraps, I've added pattern papers to it and on some parts, I've colored it with markers.

I've used several mascils by Clear Scraps with mediums to create textures and details on the background.

And here is how I've created these flowers.

First, trace and cut out some circles of different sizes from chipboard.

Cut the circles into quarters but do not cut all the way through.

Soak the circles in water.

While the circles are wet, split the layers of the chipboard circles and fold each quarter upwards. Then, let it dry.

When it is dry, paint the flowers and detail it with dimensional pearls. Lastly, add a pearl in the middle of it.

Hope you all like this mini flower tutorial and try it.
