Flower Tutorial - teeny tiny lotus flower

Flower Tutorial - teeny tiny lotus flower This is my very first tutorial, so please, please take it easy on me. I'm very new to blogging so I hope this tutorial turns out correctly.  Firstly, I must apologise for the awful colour of my nails in these photo's.  I am not a smoker!!  But I do use yellow ink for the centre of flowers.  Unfortunately with having long nails comes with the consequences of getting inked nails.  So please excuse the messy hands and nails.  But lets face it, crafting is not a clean hobby!

Im Lee and welcome to my blog.  I never thought of doing a blog until I meet the charming Miss Redrottie and she very kindly took it upon herself to set one up for me.  So thanks to her, everyone now has access to me.  All complaints can be forwarded to her blog, hee heee.  Thank you so much Redrottie I really appreciate it.  I hope to add many tutorials that will maybe inspire and help you in a little way.  My favourite thing to create at the moment is flowers so there may be a few tutorials with flowers too. Im also very fond of bookbinding so you may see some of my books too..Watch this space and I hope you enjoy.
