Well, I don't know how you gals created such pretty flowers. I've spent the better part of an hour trying, and they look like crap. One paper ended up having a hole in it, but no layer for the flower. So, I'm giving up. I'll play around with it another day and see if I can make a decent flower.
Carol, some of my flowers were simply dreadful. Really. Really awful. It depends a LOT on the papers you use. A mixture of solid papers and patterned papers with small patterns work best. And then just keep experimenting. Remember that they aren't supposed to look perfect - they are supposed to look kind of sloppy.
And remember that it's supposed to be fun.
Don't hesitate to post or to send me a pm if you have any questions. I'd be more than happy to help you. And if you want, post the flowers you have made, even if you don't like them. Maybe we can give you some feedback on what you can do so you'll like them better. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes makes all the difference. (If you do post them, could you post a link here so I'll be sure to see them? Sometimes I miss things that just get posted in the gallery.)
