My Girl – DSD – My fist Video Tutorial – Handmade Flowers with Lace.

Hi there, so lovely to see you here again! Today I have another Donna Salazar Creation to share with you. Using the Beautiful Botanique Paper Range and the Want2Scrap – Build your own Bling.
I have also created my very first online video tutorial. It has been a huge learning curve for me and very nerve wracking. I think I sound dreadful on camera but anyway it is done! I am a little excited that it is done now too! The Video Tutorial is on making your own handmade flowers with the Mix’d Media Stax papers and Lace, with a little smooch and fairy dust thrown in for good measure.
I will also be sharing a tip here on colouring bling to suit your projects.

Here is the layout I have created for this project. This is an old photo of my gorgeous daughter Leonii and myself taken a few years ago. There is lots of fussy cutting on this layout too.

When I am fussy cutting for clusters, I cut out whole pieces and then cut them down to smaller  pieces when needed. Helps to manipulate your fussy cut pieces to fit perfectly into the available spaces.


Coloured Bling Tutorial
 The bling on this layout started out as the clear silver bling. I have coloured them using the Smooch Spritz Sprays. Although these are not permanant inks I found that it held the colour enough for what I wanted here. You can also use Alcohol inks for a more permanent finish.
Step 1: Grab your clear bling, a smooch spritz spray,
I have used the Candle Glow Smooch here and an ink aplicator.
 Step 2: Spay a little of the smooch spritz on a piece of plastic or a craft sheet.
I have used the packet the bling come in here.
Then Load your ink applicator with the ink.
 Step 3: Then simply dab the ink over the bling.
Leave to set for a minute or two then dab off the excess with a paper Towel.
Now here is my first video tutorial! Thanks for watching!

Hi Michelle, I did send this same message on the DA blog so if you see it twice its just me stalking you…lol..

Hi, this question is for Michelle…I have watched her tutorial video on making the lace flowers…fantastic thnakyou but wondering Michelle if you can tell me where in Australia I can get the mix’d media stax from. I can’t seem to find it on any of my scrapbooking shops that I use. I live in Tully so I have to get everything online and I have to watch tutorials to learn new ideas as there are no classes close by….or is there anything else that I coul;d use in place of the mix’d media paper…thanks

thanks Michelle for the tutorial, I have lace ready to go
