Le Romantique Tutorial 2: Vintage Fabric flower and Flower Gem Centre - YouTube
Here is a video that I found on You Tube that shows how to make a shabby chic flowers from lace. So I decided to give it a try and here are my results. I was doing this in the evening and when it came to dye the first one I didn't want to hit anything else with color (I've yet to make me a splatter box for this) So, there was a cold cup of coffee just sitting there.............yep! I threw the flower in there then set it on a towel. After I did two more I decided it was safe to spray them with a little walnut ink.
I hope you take a moment to watch the video, it really is quite good.
Have a great day!
