Watch this video for shaping tips and techniques on the hibiscus flowers and leaves.

Instructions: Cut the green background paper to around 11" square and distress the edges. From the “By The Sea” paper, fussy cut the banner from the right side, so that the left edge remains intact. Cut notches into the right end. Slide the green background paper under the banner and onto the orange background paper so that the banner sits over the top. Shape the banner, so that the porthole area sits up from the page. Adhere the end so that the banner has a curved shape to it. Adhere the rest of the background paper in place. Cut a piece of decorative paper (a piece of scrap will do), and adhere to the back to fill in the gap left by the banner in the base background paper. Lay a stencil over the background and apply metallic paint in some random areas as shown. Allow to dry. Cut a medium panel from patterned paper. Distress the edges, then adhere tucked under the right side of the banner, with a paper doily tucked under the top right corner. Adhere the photo over the panel above the banner. Fussy cut some floral hibiscus sections from patterned paper. Shape with a stylus, and adhere under the end of the banner. Stamp and ink some leaves and hibiscus petals. Die cut and adhere prills to the stamen. Shape and arrange in clusters over the fussy cut florals on the bottom right of the layout and again over the printed images on the top left of the layout. Die cut some small shells from the pre-printed page in the paper collection. Shape with a stylus. For the cone shell, cut along the spiral, and twist into a 3 dimensional shell. Adhere the shells using foam dots to the clusters and onto the edge of the porthole image. Use dots of glossy accents to make bubbles inside the porthole image.
