      I really liked that music paper that came in the March kit but everytime I tried to use it, well it just didn't work. So I thought it would be fun to make a flower with it. Here's what I came up with.

      I have a video tute on my blog, here's a link: http://scraptravelbark.blogspot.com/2014/05/cardstock-and-woven-paper-flower.html

      I'll link directly to the video, as soon as I figure how to do that!

                As one of those who were lucky to see that flower come together in person, yeah, it is GORGEOUS!!!!!!
                Great video, Maggi & thanks for the clear gesso tip. Between that and the one about using it with mists, I suppose I really should get me some…

                  Mod Podge might work? I haven't tried it so maybe, maybe not. And as I said, you can do it without gesso but the petals wrinkle up really quick and all of a sudden so you have to really really pay attention to what you are doing. It was much easier to do with the gessoed flowers.

                      Gorgeous flower, I tried that with my flowers on the round robin, but yours is sooo much nicer!! and the bling in the middle just finishes. Love this LO.

                          Thanks so much ladies. Here's another idea. Spray the music paper with whatever color you wish, dry, and they coat with gesso. The color would be more intense that way.

                            I agree….much prettier in person! And I got a chance to watch the creation first hand!!! Love it!

                              It's hard to believe it looks even prettier than it does here! That was a great tutorial Maggi!

                                  The flower on the LO is prettier than the one in the video. I think that is in part because I used a different flower die that is really lacey. I also think spraying and then gessoing will look nicer, though I haven't tried it yet. Working on another LO right now and I think I'll try that. I'll let you know how that works out.
