MHKDesigns Inspiration Post

 
Donna here with MHKDesigns and my monthly inspiration post.
 
 
 
I could not resist using last months releases Stitched Sunflowers again and the Sunflower Sampler Pack.  Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and I fell in love with this sunflower, the beautiful sayings with it and the paper pack.  After coloring my sunflower with Copics I covered it with Versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I did this 3 times for depth and effect.  I had seen this paper fold numerous times and had wanted to give it a try.  It is easy peasy. 

Tutorial:
1 )  Choose a two side paper or  make your own like I did  by gluing two of the papers from the Sunflower Sampler Pack together.
2) Measure  the right long side of your patterned paper and make a mark at the center.
3)  Cut a straight line 2" in from the center.
4)  Fold from the center of your cut line to the top right corner, smooth with a bone folder and put a dot of two side tape underneath to secure.
5) fold from the center of your cut line to the bottom right corner, smooth with a bone folder, put a dot of two sided tape underneath to secure.
6) Add your image over your cut line with pop dots or adhesive.

Let me know if you try this, I would enjoy visiting your blog and seeing your art work!

Oh how pretty - can't wait to try this fold - and what a great tutorial you did. I think I can follow the instructions with no problems. And all fussy cutting - great job.
