Welcome to another Close to My Heart Product Spotlight Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Just Bloom flowers! Flowers are one of my favorite products and with two girls I add them to almost every page. Plus, the Summer Posies and the White Daisies are currently on sale!
Here’s a closeup of the flowers (the best I could get because they are so shiny):
Products used are all CTMH: Magic Moments Level 2 Paper Packet, Just Blooms White Daisy Variety Pack, Spot On Backgrounds stamp set, Playful Flourishes stamp set, Create-a-Shade paint, Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Hodge Podge Color Ready Alphabet, Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf, and Chocolate ink.
Layout Challenge: #55 of 210
My favorite flowers are the White Daisies because you can make them any color you want by using reinkers and dying them. There are so many things that you can do with these flowers: add a little or a lot of color with reinkers and ink, stamp them with any design and color for added detail, layer them, or paint them. There are many things you can add as the flower center: a drop of paint or glitter glue, buttons, brads, eyelets, rhinestones/gems/sparkles, pearls, a ribbon knot, sticker, or stamped image.
You can see many of these techniques on the flowers on my layout. I stamped some of them with different images and because I just love the shimmer I painted them all with Create-a-Shade paint. I also love sparkles so I added them as my flower centers and around the flower clusters. The Color Ready alphabet stickers are sponged with Sweet Leaf for a perfect color match to my layout.
