So, what's a girl to do? Pinterest to the rescue! I found a lovely photo which has no link to anything else and there's a technique that I'm dying to figure out! So to be clear... This is NOT my work, I 'd don't know whose it is or the pattern. If you know, let me know and I will absolutely give credit, etc.
Here's the link: http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/1200x/6b/33/1f/6b331ff74a84094e4507129c85baf389.jpg
Does anyone know the technique to create the little flower bursts?
