My homemade roses

I spent most of yesterday making these few flowers, Im sure others can make them in minutes but with my arms and their limited use i had to keep stopping and resting them and found this quite a task..although it was a fairly simple way to make roses and im pleased with the results even if they are not the best hand made roses ever...but hey I did it I made them myself....



I chose on this occasion to make different colours to experiment and see which colours i prefered...and i must admit out of all of them i like the yellow one..which kind of surprised me as i thought i would like the red one best so it goes to show that you should always experiment with different colours...

I think the yellow one really pops out and looks the most realistic one of all..i followed the instructions of the tutorial (i will post a link at the end of this post) and sprayed the flowers with glimmer mist i used pearlessence but infact i prefered the roses without it so next time i wont be adding the glimmer mist....


I cut  heart shaped petals on my babes along with a tiny circle at their bases, i needed 6 x 2 1/4" 5 x2" 4x1 3/4" and 3x1 1/2" and a brad with long enough prongs to fit them all onto, and i must say they were easy like the tutorial promised and i think for a first attempt i didnt do too badly but like i said i followed the tutorial to the latter..if i had to do this on my own then it would have been a very different story lol :)  Now i just have to get myself in gear and actually do something with these...

You can find the tutorial here:..http://www.scrap-a-little.com/2009/09/flower-tutorial-summary.html
