I've finally found the video I watched before I made the handmade flowers. I watched it one night and made a few notes but didn't get to make the flowers a few days. When I went back to add the link to the tutorial I just couldn't find the video again. After a bit of searching I've now found it and would like to give credit to the creator as this is what got me started making the flowers for my layouts.
The video is by Gabrielle Pollacco. She is an amazing artist and has lots of fantastic videos and tutorials on her website. Please drop by and check them out.
