Easy flower tutorial

Hi Everyone! Just wanted to share this tutorial I just finished up. It's a pretty straight forward design. It is intended to be done on a large round base bead that is easy for a beginner to do. Of course what ever shape your inclined to do will also work. I personally like elongated tube shapes. The colors used for this tutorial are for example only. You can use what ever combination of colors you wish. You will need to use graduated colors in lighter shades to be able to see a difference in the individual petals. You also may wish to use white or a contrasting color under each petal.
I am planning to post the full size version on my web site if anyone is interested let me know and I will get it up sooner. To get the elliptical shape of the petals you can either apply 2 dots of the same color touching each other or you can poke and drag it to that shape. I will also post a picture of the bead made with this tutorial soon.
