Create your own flourishes!

Hello Practical Scrappers!  Practical Scrapper Julie here with an easy technique to make your own flourishes.
 
Material you will need to do this
Pearl Pen (you can also use Liquid Pearl or Stickles)
Transparency Sheet
Any flourishes you have on hand
A scanner and printer
 
 
Step 1
Scan your flourish face down on the scanner, save it and print.  This sheet will become your template.  You do not have a scanner?  You can use your camera and take a picture of your flourish.


Template

Step 2
Put your transparency sheet on your flourish template and start dotting with your Pearl Pen.  If you are not satisfy with the result, just use a baby swipe and start again.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Step 3
Let dry.  The time will vary depending on the medium used.  I love to use Pearl Pens as they dry quickly.
 
 
 
Step 4
Once dry, trim around and your are ready to add it to your layout.
 


 Those flourishes are easy to make and the possibilities are unlimited.
