Hello! Are you working on your entry for Challenge #10, Set the Scene? I thought I would stop by today with a couple tips for creating simple scenery elements using the June kit, Garden Party.
First, a flower with a stem. Garden Party includes a sheet of Woolies by Basic Grey. I chose to work with one of the largest flowers and the leaves. To create a stem, I cut out a piece of patterned paper (also in the kit) about 2.5″ x 3″. I added a strip of adhesive down one edge on the wrong side, then began rolling as tightly as I could. I finished the stem with another strip of adhesive. I like the dimension the rolled paper gives the final piece, but you could always trim a flat piece of paper to size.
Next, a tree. I used the same rolling paper technique for the tree’s trunk. To create the foilage, I used three small circles and three larger circles punched from patterned paper in the kit. I arranged them in a way I liked and added the last center piece with dimensional adhesive. Lastly, I accented the treetop with a butterfly and flower charm from the kit.
Together, both of these cards took about 20 minutes to make. So if you have some spare time coming up this weekend, why not give Challenge #10 a try? For all the details on playing along, see this post. Have a great day!
