Layered Flower

These flowers have been made from paper napkins-serviettes (depends on what country you are from)

I recently went to CIA and went to Wendy(the owner of Tattered Angels-Glimmer Mist Company) and Heidi's (Heidi Swapp) workshops and came away with lots of inspiration. I also came away with many used serviettes. "you know you are addicted to craft when you wait for the lady you were sitting next to to leave and you go through the bin and take her used napkins also"- used napkins meaning they were swiped over the glimmer mist to take layers off.
I made these flowers using the used napkins.
They are just layers of circles scrunched up and some flattened to give a ruffled appearance. The little ones have more layers.
The stem and leaves have been drawn freehand from the napkins .
I ran some Chrystallina Kindy Glitz over the petals.
