High Hopes Tutorial week


It's "tutorial week" over at the
High Hopes Blog!!

This weeks tutorial is brought to you by ME!!

I am showing you how I make my
"Paper Tole Flowers"

* Paper tole....also known as three-dimensional decoupage
is the art of handcrafting three-dimensional pictures from
flat prints. Paper tole art is created by cutting, shaping,
and assembling pieces of paper layered onto an image
until a three-dimensional version of the image emerges.

High Hopes has some gorgeous flower stamps
just perfect for paper tole....designed by
artist Laurie Furnell

I covered a wooden box I had with DP paper and
made 4 note cards and envelopes to fit inside.

The flower stamps I used are....

DH Posey
DH Double Daisy
Larry's Lovely Poppy
Hoppy Single Flower

There is one flower in this set that isn't
paper toled...still a beautiful flower...
just without the 3D effect!!
Can you pick out which one it is?

I embossed all the note cards with a CB
embossing folder. The frames were
cut with my nesties. I embossed the flowers
with black and painted them with Tombows.
The sentiments are Peel off's and I
colored them with my Identa pens.
The DP is from Basic Grey.

Be sure to pop on over to the
High Hopes Blog and check out my tutorial!!

Have a great day
Thanks so much for stopping by....
