Paper magnolia tutorial

I hope this tutorial is the first step of many more to come.

I learned to make paper flowers by myself studying images of real flowers ….I must be honest with you, I think this is the way to go so that you can be truly unique and creative in your work. Tutorials can be helpfull at first, to learn the necesary skills, but always remember to study nature.

The photographs are made by my dear friends from Deersphotography… take a look at their website to see how talented they are! I love them!

I love magnolias! It’s one of my favorite flower… I think it’s the perfect choice for this first tutorial, at the beginning of spring.

…but first, I have to share some guidelines about my aesthetic. I mix the paper flower techniques with my love for colors and painting thats why I paint my paper so I can obtain the colour I whant. I love mixing paint and discovering new shades all the time. I work with Italian crepe paper and acrilyc colors… I treat the paper like it’s my canvas. I think this type of paper is perfect for my vision…it’s thick and very resistant. I’m not sure I can teach you how to paint the paper and mix the colours because it’s an artistic proces… it comes from deep within and I don’t work with recipes. I use to be a painter, I went to art school so… it’s a know how from many years of practice and study.
