Watch this video to learn different shaping techniques using the dogwood flowers.

Instructions: Cut a sheet of background paper to approximately 11" square. Distress the edges then adhere to a second sheet of background paper. From the paper collection, fussy cut the two large dove images. Shape the edges, then arrange on the page opposite each other but slightly offset from each other. Adhere in place. Cut a medium panel from patterned paper and distress the edges. Adhere to the centre of the two dove images using foam dots. Adhere the photo over the panel on an angle to show off the floral border using foam dots to adhere. Cut a sentiment strip from patterned paper and cut notches into the left side. Shape and adhere to the bottom left edge of the photo with a sentiment tag overlapping at the bottom. Stamp the two different floral branches and die cut. Colour with distress inks using a water brush. Cut into smaller sections. Shape with a stylus, and adhere in place on the top and two sides of the photo. Stamp a series of petals in all sizes and die cut. Ink the centres of all in yellow. Add pink ink to the edges of most of the petals, and green on a few of the smaller ones. Stamp and die cut leaves and colour also. Shape the leaves and petals with a stylus, then layer the larger petals together to form larger flowers. Build floral clusters on either side of the photo, starting with the largest flowers. Tuck leaves into the edges of the clusters. Add green stamens to the large flowers and seed beads to the smaller ones. Tuck some tied ribbon into the top of the left side cluster. Add more seed beads to the centres of the printed flowers in the background. Add glitter to all the petals of both the formed flowers and the printed ones on then background. Add some random paint dots around the clusters and rows around the photo matt.
