Morning peeps..... it's certainly been very wet and windy in my part of the world but I'm feeling quite cozy indoors! I know I'm probably odd but I love it when the rain sets in!!! My son isn't quite so happy though as he had a cricket match called off last night because of the weather!!
Anyway, after receiving a couple of emails about my torn roses I thought I'd post a little tutorial..... this is a first for me so please be gentle, lol! Plus I thought I'd enter Tip Top Tuesday for a second time this week so that I can show this as my tip ;o)
Step One: Firstly I start with a piece of 6x6 paper or card...... Co'redinations card looks fantastic with this torn technique so that's what I tend to go for, but anything goes really.
Step Two: I cut the card into four smaller squares...... this gives a nice size for the roses.
Step Three: Then I start to tear in a circular motion to get a round shape from which to start my spiral.
Step Four: As I finish tearing the circle I leave a slight lip from which to begin tearing the spiral shape.
Step Five: I start to tear in a circular motion to create a spiral shape.
Step Six: I continue tearing and try to keep the width as even as possible, but if it isn't perfect it only adds to the handtorn effect really!
Step Seven: I start to fold over the outer edge of the spiral.
Step Eight: I continue to fold it, following the shape of the spiral as I go.
Step Nine: I glue the folded up shape to its base with a hot glue gun.
Step Ten: I tease out the spiral shape so that it looks like a rose...... then all that's left to do is add a pearl centre or a stamen..... whatever you like really.
Here are a couple of my recent cards where I've used these torn roses...... hope you'll have a go and let me know if you do so I can check out your creation ;o)
Thanks for stopping by!
TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
