Hello there! I have three posts for you today - hence, my DDD post launched a bit early to avoid a traffic jam on the blog :)
I just love flowers! I think it's part of my English mom's heritage in me that I'm always wishing I lived with a backyard filled with an English style garden with mazes and trellis' full of flowers :) Any chance to build/craft/create with flowers is always a good day :) And since it's my turn to post on The Scrapping Cottage blog, I thought I'd bring you a slightly different treat! And one day last week I was zipping around on SCS and saw the tutorial on used dryer sheets and fell in love! We - a family of 6 - definitely have mounds of laundry and dryer sheets are a must, so when I saw the tutorial, I was super eager to give it a try. It was soooooo easy!! You can see my step by step pictorial here on the Cottage Cutz blog, and here you can see the final product :) I ended up adding my recycled dryer sheet flower to a collage. This is one of my favorite past-times to create without any general direction - all the pieces in this framed collage are all scraps! But if you truly want to some some collage-type inspiration, please stop in and visit my friend, Julie - oh my... she is an inspiration!
So here is the final result, cut using the stitched flower die (love this die!), run through the Cuttlebug with a shim and dryer sheet. After they are all out, I spritzed them with some Tattered Angels in Trunk Bay (the color :) - let them dry and edged them with some Stickles glitter glue. After that was dry, I just built up the flowers and added one of them to this collage with a verse, scraps of material and buttons and added it to a small frame. Easy and such a lovely result!

This is so pretty and love the flower, I saw the tutorial, but figured it was going to be too detailed, but now I have to give it a try. I love flowers as well and wish I could do what the lady in the Lowe's commercial does, just roll out the carpet! Have a great day.ReplyDelete
So lovely! I've used dryer sheets to cover a stamped image but never cut them out like this-can't wait to try and I need to do some laundry!ReplyDelete
I am just loving this wonderful bright framed collage you have created with your random play and dryer sheets Kelly. Just fabulous! xxReplyDelete
Great ideas and execution. With all the loads of laundry you do, you will probably have to start selling the flowers!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tutorial, Kelly. The flowers looks gorgeous !!ReplyDelete
Gee, I never thought about using the dryer sheets before, but this is a fantastic idea for your layered flowers. Wonderful design.
Your collage is very uplifting and beautiful, Kelly. I've never tried the dryer sheet flowers, but after seeing yours I will definitely have to.ReplyDelete
