Hi everyone,

Its Melinda Thompson here for my very first blog post!  Today I am going to share with you a few tips / techniques I used when I created my canvas.

As you can see I love layering up my flowers and I wanted to use some of these cute little white flowers and poke them into the larger flowers.  I didn’t want them looking lost, so I decided to add a little colour just to the centre of these flowers.  To do this all you need to do is pull the top off your mist bottle and gently pump some of the mist that is caught in the clear pipe directly into the centre of the flower.  This will spread slightly but will give the flower a gorgeous ‘centre’ colour.


I also wanted to create a ‘bud’ look, so with these dainty white and purple flowers all I did was give them a good spray with some water and while they were still slightly damp, gently pull the petals together until you get the desired look you want.


I hope you enjoyed these few tips and next month I will be back with a more detailed step x step.

Thanks for looking
