Recycled Flower Tutorial

It's finally here!! I've finally done it, yay!! My recent videos have been somewhat of a struggle to finish with me not feeling so great recently but now I'm nothing but super excited about actually using these =)
I know there are a zillion billion flower-making tutorials out there, but I thought I would add mine to the mix and show how you don't need any special supplies to make funky flowers. No, they don't look like Prima, but I really want to help push new way of thinking for creativity - unique and arty is good! handmade-looking things are good! things do NOT need to look like they were brought from a craft store to be 'acceptable'! Messy, junky, scrappy are all *GOOD*, plus they make you happy to look at =)
I will make a video on how I make the stems, leaves & this quick recycled vase for the, but for now here's the how-to for these funky, scrappy, arty flowers:
Hope you use up some of your junk and give them a try, thanks for stopping by =) Jennibellie xx

  8. As always, it is fantastic! Whenever i watch your tutorials, i experience these stages --- a) at the beginning, the idea seems common; b) then you are on step 2 and you introduce the 'jennibellie factor' and voila! everything turns into something extraordinary. thank you for sharing!

  12. Alpha Shanahan is exactly right. Once you add the Jenni fabulous factor, everything you do is just awesome. You are the most amazing artist. You don't even have to worry about being copied, because no one else has the JenniFabulous-ness. I love all your videos. The problem is, I have to jump up from the computer and run out to my art room and do something artsy right away. That is not a "problem" for me, but it is if my husband wants dinner that night.

  18. These are brilliant. Wait until my daughter sees this. At 9 years old she loves making anything. We saw your Travel Art journal kit and we have both put our own togehter to take away with us at Christmas. She as even put together her own journal to add to on the trip.

    1. Hi Sandy, it is actually in the body of this blogpost (at the bottom), though perhaps your browser isn't letting you see it for some reason - if so please follow the 'youtube' link via the buttons I have on the top of right hand side column of this blog and watch it on my YT channel directly (searching is easy, either enter 'flowers' with the search facility on my channel or switch the order on the videos page to 'most viewed' and it'll come up first) hope that helps

  30. LOVE LOVE LOVE these flowers...I made them with my neighbor today and she loves them too. Can you tell me what brand of white paint pen you use? I haven't had much luck with white paint/gel pens...it seems I buy one, use it, and by the next time I go to use it just doesn't want to write. Thanks so much for such an inspirational video...Oh, and we made the buttons too...LUV them!!! Thank you sooooo much for sharing! :)
