Hi folks. Don't faint......this is not your imagination or an illusion! Tis I......Loops! Heehee
Boy oh boy did my mojo take a turn for the worst! It really was touch and go there for a while.....we thought I might lose it all together. But, I am glad to say that after a great deal of looking after and the arrival of a certain Ginormous Birthday Box I received (see last post) gladly, Loops's mojo has made a full recovery and is ready and raring to go, lol. Phew, Im glad to be back.....Shucks but I missed you guys (she blushes meekly........"Oh Aye" you say "Loops is real meek"!!)
I was asked ages ago by Sonia if I would mind doing a tutorial on a Lilly Flower. Well, we all know I love a good challenge and love requests and as I had made these wee babies before I thought to myself.....why not do a wee video on how to make them. Now the video I have done is for a wee Calla Lilly and you can basically make them any size you want with any centres you want as you will see from my video. BUT, if you want to see how to make a Tiger Lilly, well I thought there was no point in me doing another one when Fiona Jennings from Jennings644 on Youtube did one already. Here is Fiona's channel here. She also did a video on how to do these Calla Lillies too after I sent her a few of mine for her Birthday. So that video is on her channel as well.
Anywhoodles, back to my Calla Lilly. You need very little to make these wee cuties and they literally take a minute or two to make one. Please do excuse the state of my nails and hands. One poor old index finger is healing from hot glue burns.....dont ask! And my other index finger nail completely broke off! I know, I know.....it was a complete shock to the other nails on that hand. But they came to terms with the loss of the index finger nail and they are moving on and if they can move on, then so should we! heehee
Enjoy the video. As always, any questions, comments, requests or challenges, please shout on the comment section or shoot me a wee email on the contact button above.
These ones make incredibly beautiful stickpins too. So keep that in mind when you make the wee ones. They dont need to stay as single wee flowers - bling'em up with lovely spacer beads and wings etc. I ended up painting mine with Diamond Stickles, just to bling them up a bit more and make them sparkly and yummy. Oh and dont limit these wee babies to teeny tiny proportions.......BIG these bad boys up. If you dont have a punch or die big enough, just draw and cut one out. That way you can make these any size you want. Let your imagination run wild.......I know mine does! So much so that Im gonna have to go chase the wee blighter down as I need it back to make something! Tutt, tutt....running wild imaginations, huh? Whatever next Loops?!?
Thats it from me folks, I promise I won't leave it as long next time.
