Dynamic Duo Blog Hop

Happy Monday everyone! Starting off the week here with the blog hop featuring goodies from TaDa and Punky Sprouts!


Today I'm sharing a simple layout I put together using papers from TaDa and and the canvas flowers from Punky Sprouts:
{paper supplies: sizziln' summer from Ta-Da Creative}

Here are a few tips on dip dying the canvas flowers:

Start by pouring out some ink on to a flat tray {or plate, in my case!}

Dilute with a bit of water:

Pull apart the canvas to form the flower:

Roll the precut canvas to create the flower:

Glue with a good fabric adhesive {I use fabritac}:

Lay the flower face down in the ink. Allow it to sit for a few minutes to soak up a bit of the ink:

Remove from ink:

Dry with a heat gun, and attach to your layout!
