Flower Power

This week's Life Book 2013 lesson is led by Christy Tomlinson.  Christy's theme is "New and Starting Again."  She used the example of a flower reseeding itself.

Using some of Christy's mixed media techniques, we were to create flowers out of coffee filters and aluminum foil.  This is a new one for me!  I'm not sure I will ever use this technique again, but then again, maybe I will.  I didn't have all of the supplies Christy uses, so I made do with what I had on hand.  My flowers look a bit like a botanical print.  I especially like the shadows created by the 3-D flower petals.  I'm fairly certain this page will get totally crushed in my journal...sigh...

Your flowers came out very nice! Looks like your technique worked just fine! I like the button centers, too. xx

My daughter has made snowflakes out of coffee filters, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised to see them being used for flowers. Very nice. Visiting from Lissa's Walk and Click.

What an interesting technique. It's a "snow day" today and I have coffee filters and foil. Hmmmmmm....sounds like a plan .
