Love Plaque

This is my first project as a "Spotlight Gal" for GCD Studios. I am honor to have been selected for August. I made this "Love Plaque" simply because I love GCD products. I used the Ella Blue Collection - Frances and Georgia papers, along with the Homespun Chic Pink Redwood paper. I purchased my board at our local craft store for 2.99 , I had a 40% coupon. Yippee!!! My blue berries and brown flowers were also purchased there on sale. Another Yippee!!!
The other flowers are from Prima and Stringing Heart Flowers along with some that I made. I painted my frame first using Creamcoat Burnt Umber. I put my paper on the inside of plaque. Added some large twill ribbon and mini blue ric rac. I took 2 - 3 1/2" dollies and ink the top of them with my Chestnut Roan ink, once they were ink I glue 1 doily to the lower inside left corner, 1/2 of a doily to the top right of the curve and 1/4 doily to the lower right inside corner of my plaque. My letters are the GCD Big Alphabet that I covered with the Frances Paper and ink using Chestnut Roan ink.

Following are a few picture to show you how to make these flowers. So, so easy and so cute.

I used a Marvy 3 1/2" punch for my large flowers, but you can use any size. Just remember the smaller the circle the small the flower.

I cut the circle with my scissors so it would be a spiral.

Taking my tweezers I began rolling and as I rolled I would occasionally put us a small amount of glue to hold it into place.

When I got it completely rolled I glue it to a small circle. When I knew my glue was dry I than added it to my plaque along with a little bling. The smaller paper flowers I will be showing you later this month. So please remember to come and check out what tutorials I will have for you to enjoy.
