Layered Shape Templates: Real Flowers
May 30, 2008

Here’s my latest set of templates, Real Flowers! I tried something new this time and based these templates on actual photos. I used a pen and tablet to digitally draw the different layers of petals, so these are are not as smooth around the edges as my previous templates, but I like the natural look to them.
Here are larger versions of the example pages:

- To make the flower pop, add a drop shadow to each layer of petals, if you want the flower to blend in with the background, leave off the shadows.
- Don’t forget to turn/shift your papers as you place them over the petal templates. Various lighting, textures and patterns can change the look dramatically!
- Try resizing/rotating individual layers of petals or using just one petal layer with the center.
- Maybe mix and match petal layers from a few different flowers?
Have fun with these, and please link me up to anything you make using them :).
P.S. This was the free gift I sent those of you who answered my question on National Scrapbook Day :)! If you didn’t get yours, please check your junk mail, and if you still don’t find it let me know, OK?
