Lisa here. I wanted to share with you today a quick tutorial. It never fails, I want to add rhinestone flourishes to my projects and either I don't have the right color or shape flourish for my project. I have a great solution. Creating your own flourishes is really quite simple. Creative Charms has so many amazing colors of gradient gems that you have endless choices. Here is how I created mine.
1. Start by finding a flourish image that you like. I found this great image as a free download at Free Illustrator Downloads. After resizing it in Adobe Photoshop, I printed it on plain white paper. I then used a paper piercer to poke holes in the pattern.
2. I then placed it on my project and used a pencil to mark the holes.
3. Then simply add gradient gems. After adding gradient gems where you need them, erase any marks that are still visible.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
