Technique Tuesday with Zoe Nemburt

Happy Tuesday Ladies, Getting real close to Christmas now!! Have you finished your shopping? I’m almost done a little more wrapping to do. Todays technique is Clusters, I love clustering flowers together it’s a great way to use up some of last seasons primas!!

I like to lay out the flowers before I start try to keep to 2 or 3 shades of flowers, I always believe a more monochromatic looks gives more of an impact. I also cut apart a couple of the larger blooms to make the cluster look more coordinated.

It’s always nice to start with a crescent shape, so gather your larger flowers don’t stick them down until your happy with the way they flow across the page.

Once your happy with the shape and appearance you can start to build up with the smaller flowers (the small prima roses are PERFECT) and add some leaves and or paper foliage cut out from coordinating paper, I used Websters Pages for this layout and there is never a shortage of pretty flowers and foliage to cut out.

I just added a few crystals here, now you could add any pearl or rhinestone swirls, if you cut the up you can add smaller swirls around the cluster for a neat look.

Here is my finished layout. I hope you liked my short tutorial today.
