Bleached out Prima's

It's no secret, I love Prima goodies. Flowers are a passion for me. I am NOT afraid to paint, ink, and otherwise distress the heck out of my flowers. I have been bleaching many things lately, so I figured I could do flowers too, and I might as well try it out!

If you want to try it, all you need is paper flowers, bleach, and paper towels. Pull out your flowers, and pour just a little bit of bleach into the cap. Place these on a paper towel.




All you have to do now, is simply dip the tips of the flowers into the bleach. You may want to go with a light touch here. The flowers REALLY suck up the bleach, and it will bleed up into the flowers pretty far. Then you only need to set the flowers down onto the paper towel to dry.




I tried several different colors, and after they dry, they look SO cool! Have a look:




The pink flowers really called to me, so I got them onto a layout first:




They look so cool and different! I believe I will be doing this technique quite often. How about you, is this something you may try??
