Grunge Flowers

Last Saturday I had a class and this is one of the projects I designed using Grunge Paper. They had so much fun and there were so many that wanted to take the class I get to teach it again this Saturday. Two fun classes back to back.

The leaf was die cut using grunge paper and the flowers were stamped on grunge paper and cut out, colored and layered using grunge board as the spacers. The background or hanger was cut using Labels One Nestabilities colored and stamped, cut two of them. The one corner I curled up to show a different look. I thought it turned out quite nice. The arrangement of flowers are then attached to the top. What is so unique using grunge paper you can curl the edges and make the flowers and leaves look dimensional.

I took pictures of what the gals did in class and would like to post the pictures in some type of collage format. Maybe someone has some information on how I can do this. I checked to see if I had a template in my photo program, but it doesn't
