Renunculus and Anemone

For now I have packed away the paints and brushes
but I kept the crepe paper and the scissors. Working on tutorials
for the crepe paper flowers takes time but it is rewarding.
When you create a new flower, even from a template, flower number three
is the better one. So I say that you don't need to worry if the first two are not perfect,
you learn by making and creating.
Keep record of what you learn.

We had a cold spell recently and I needed to make something
that reminded me of Spring. So I made some bulbs.

This small bouquet that fits into a teacup was a gift for my mother.

Crepe Paper Magnolias

For these two Magnolia's I used two different templates.
It doesn't really matter, because they still look like Magnolias.
 An extra bud and some leaves also make
them look more natural.

Then I had to ask a friend how to photograph the white
flowers. It is quite tricky, because the light keeps bouncing off
the white paper and surroundings. But a side light did the trick.
I am doing a faerie flower hat for the next issue of Creative Hobbies Magazine.
Every little girls dream for a flower princess party.
