Welcome to Christine paper design.
“Paper flowers are my passion and a memory that will last forever.”
…so, I was so happy when I discovered these wonderful paper blooms because I finally found a way to express my talent, my craftsmanship and my love for colors, all together.
I learned the techniques of making paper flowers by myself, I wanted to have my own style and became a paper artist! So, after a few years of learning and practice, I quit my job and began making paper flowers full time.
I make flowers and bouquets that can last many years, that bring joy in people’s homes and lives and preserve a memory of some event – the wedding day for example. I feel so grateful that I can make something beautiful with my own two hands.
With every flower I make I try to capture the realistic look as good as I can… my customers are always telling me stories how people always mistake my flowers with real one, which gives me so much pride and joy.
I mix the paper flower techniques with my love for colors and painting and I study images with real flowers and try to figure out ways of reproducing them. I spend lots of hours researching and my flowers have an unique, distinguished look today after many years of practice.
Also, because I’m not satisfied with the range of crepe paper coloring (which also fades very quickly), I paint the paper so I can obtain the colors I want and make it more resistant. I love mixing paints and discovering new shades all the time. I work only with Italian crepe paper and acrylic colors… I see this paper as my canvas and I think it’s perfect for my vision, thick and very resistant.
My working process starts with research of real flowers. I study many images with them, I make sketches, mood boards and think of ways to reproduce and practice them. After this steps are ready I make all the flowers, greenery, buds and other elements necessary for my bouquet … of course, the color theme is controlled in every small detail.
I always find inspiration in nature and real flowers. There is also a very talented worldwide community of paper flower artists which I truly admire and keeps me motivated.
I spend most of the time in my studio… it’s a lot of hard work but always so fascinating! I usually make a bridal bouquet in four or five days of non-stop work, more than 12 hours a day! There is a lot of sacrifice behind my work, so you must be aware that when you by my products you get a piece of my hart and soul with it. I love what I do and I make every single flower with lots and love and dedication.
Enjoy the galleries on my web-site and social media networks, with lots of images… a testimony of many years of hard work and dedication.
