Try It Tuesday~ out dated phone books, keep em'!!!!

Hi guys!
A fun post today.  You know that stack of out dated phone books pull
a couple out before you get rid of the stack, trust me on this~

they are fun to craft with.  The tissue type paper covered in text make the thin dies
 so easy to cut several layers at one time.  They are great for journal pages
 and collage pages too.  I made vintage flowers !!!

1. Tear three to four pages out together (keep them together) and use a spray mist
 or ink to add color.

2. Heat dry to speed the process up. Add as many colors as you like.  Watercolors
 would be great too.

3. The half sheet made two complete flowers.  Each flower section has three layers.
 Scrunch the layers up for more dimension.  
4. Staple in the center, to hold the flower together. Shade with ink.

Supplies used:
out dated phone book
cardstock (for card base)
A Jillian Vance Design: Big Christmas Greetings, Sentimental Script, Leaves & Petals die and Pop Up Petals
Dylusions inks: Dirty Martini, Squeezed Orange, Post Box Red and Lemon Zest
Archival ink: Jet Black
Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk ink: Barn Red
FSJ: Cranberry Bliss Silk 
Buttons Galore & More
Scrapbook Adhesives (foam sqaures)
