Here's a layout I created for this issue:

Copyright Creative Crafts Group.  Posted with prior permission from the publisher.

I made the flowers out of Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper that I colored with pigment powders:


 
First I used my Slice to cut flowers from glassine paper.  I crumpled each flower slightly and applied pigment powders with a cotton swab (you can also use a paintbrush). I then used a heat gun on each flower to set the pigment powder.  Last, I layered the flowers and added a bit of Bazzill bling to the center of each layered flower.  Credit:  I saw this technique done on Tim Holtz' blog

You can find a copy of the March/April issue at your local newsstand/bookstore, or you can purchase a copy of the issue from CK's online store:  March/April 2012 issue.  Here's a link to the online extras so you can find the contests, downloads, and techniques that compliment this issue: March/April online extras.

I saw Tim do that technique too. I haven't bought the glassine paper yet but it looks really awesome! Thanks for showcasing it! (Tim doesn't do a whole lot of flowers so it's nice to see!) :D

I've never used pigment powder so that's the article that I'd be especially interested in.
