One Thing Leads to Another
If you make a homemade flower, then you have to do something with it, so you make an embellishment. If you make an embellishment, then you have to use it on something, so you make a layout. And so it goes..... I discovered a free on-line tutorial to make flowers out of Jenni Bowlin crepe paper. This was quite fortuitous because I already had in my stash some of this great stuff. I had used it to make a bow for my Old Settlers' Rides layout. I don't know the first thing about making my own flowers (other than the famous Wendy grungepaper roses, etc.), so I decided to check out the tutorial. The Fabulous Flowers Class was a designated site from Scrapbook Challenges and taught by Betsy Sammarco. I learned how to make several different flowers with JB crepe paper.
To cap off the week, we were challenged to make and post a project using the flower(s). Back in the spring, I bought some JB paper and chipboard buttons with the intention of making a patriotic layout for this photo. So the challenge was on..... This also is my humble attempt at using a lot of white space on a layout as well as putting something interesting in a corner.
The photo is of a cafe owned by relatives during WWII. There is a sign on the wall, Serving U.S. Armed Forces. Hence, the red, white and blue patriotic theme.
All materials are Jenni Bowlin products.
