Hi all!
Happy PDT! Today I am sharing a very easy and quick tutorial for a shabby fabric flower. It's been a while since I have made these and I first saw something along these lines from Melissa Samuels.
Here is a layout with one of the flowers.
Supplies you will need:
Different strips of fabric. I used Burlap, Cheesecloth, Muslin, and Lace.


1. Cut fabrics into small strips. The size depends on how big you want your flower.
2. Stack your strips by alternating fabrics throughout.
3. Next, use your twine to wrap around and tie tightly.
4. Start spreading strips outward to form the shape of your flower
5. Trim off excess/shape it up and add your center.
For you center you can use anything! Make a bow out of the twine and glue it down..use a brad or a it off with another flower. The possibilities are endless here!

You can even give it some color by using some mist! I used Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz.
Hope you enjoyed today's PDT!

Craft and You Desgins

Just sharing a new layout using Craft and You Designs "Spring Garden Collection". 

The collection is one of my favorites and the quality of the paper is truly amazing!

On the background I used a new Prima stencil with some Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Lemon Drop. I then used a Donna Downey Stencil "Blooming Floral" with some 13 arts Gesso. 
 I added some Prima Resin Frames and stamped a little with Finnabair Dirty Walls Cling Stamp set. The flowers are asst. Prima and Petaloo.

Hope you get creative this week!
