paper flowers

i played with making paper flowers tonight

these are made by starting with a piece of light scrapbook paper  mine was white on one side so i wadded it up then rubbed some ink over the white side  to add a bit of color  

now wad it up several times making it soft and pliable  then either cut or tear it into a rough circle then continue tearing in a circle    remember the paper snakes or spirals you use to make as a kid   same thing

now start from the middle and loosely roll it into a flower shape   smash and shape it till your happy with it 

i also added some torn paper leaves

great flowers, and it sounds like you have the supplies to send for my art journal swap (Swap-bot)...pretty please? I don't mean to be a pain, I'm just trying to have a bit of faith in a fellow artist!
