Life Happens!  Sorry it has taken me so long to get this posted. I have had the nasty bug, prom, graduation, 3 photo shoots, parties and everyday life.  Things have finally slowed down so here are the paper pansies I made from my inspiration.

I had such fun making these.  I used inks, water colors and color blast to color these. I also tried my trusty dryer sheets to make these.  Really didn't like the dryer sheets as much as the paper ones. I cut out hearts with my Art Philosophy cartridge, you can use any size. I cut mine at 1 and 1 1/2 inches. I used five hearts for each flower. Three whole ones and two half ones.  You will also need a circle to adhere them too. Size of circle depends on the size of hearts you use. You need to cut a little bit off of the tips of your hearts. I colored mine and then used a bone folder and stylus to shape each one.  You can use a quick dry paper glue, glue dots, or double sided tape to adhere the hearts to your circles.  I added the top two first and overlapped them, then I added the two halves next and the bottom one last.  I cut the leaves free handed.  You could use a punch, cricut, or dies to cut your shapes.  Then add a center...I used buttons, pearl brads, and a paper punched heart .

Add a little shading and vein lines with a marker and you are done.  I also shaped the leaves and added a little ink to add some texture to them.  I really like the way they turned out. I want to try some smaller ones . . . . think they would be cute.

These two are my favorite.
