I think this is a new found passion! I know that I have many more tutorial to watch...But I'm enjoying very much making flowers!

I created this beautiful flower using a heavy white color cardstock, a lovely (XL) flower paper punch, mini mister and Tim Holtz distress ink in *spun sugar*...I also use Perfect pearls *blue patina* for adding a little bit of whimsy!

"More Paper Than Shoes" is a Blog of a team of highly creative women who share the passion for paper more than our shoes! We as a group have combined our interests, talents, mutual respect, and our love for paper crafting, here at More Paper Than Shoes.

September Challenge for "More Paper Than Shoes"!

This is it!!!...My September challenge for "More Paper Than Shoes"!!!

The theme was "Rusty Bucket" - We had to use twine and a piece of metal. The technic was Torn Paper.
I use a printed paper I had in my collection since I started doing scrapbooking in 2005!!! I torned each side and distressed it with Tim Holtz distress ink. I fold a couple of torned corners and I used Rock Candy crackel paint to add an even more distressed look! A few embellishments later and VOILA!!!
