Painting the paper to make fall leaves is one of my favorite things to do! It gives me such an incredible peaceful feeling and a creative connection with nature in its most beautiful state. In this last couple of months I’ve made these autumn inspired paper wreaths, with pastel shades, hydrangeas and dahlias, that you can buy from my new etsy shop.
This paper flowers bouquet was inspired by the interior of a house near the water, in California. A color theme with white tones, soft greens, some blue and purple seemed the perfect fit for that place. I used a lot of paper greenery, eucalyptus, olive branches and the flower diversity is rich, romantic, with an exotic twist: anemone, garden roses, some hydrangeas, sweet peas, fritillaria tulips, scabiosa, lunaria plant, a white protea and a artichoke. The Queen Anne’s lace gives it the finale touch… this lovely wildflower is one of the most difficult plant that I’ve had to recreate so far.
After so many years of creating paper flowers bridal bouquets I can say that I know how to master this field. I enjoy making projects that are creative and complex, with lots of flower types, sizes and shapes. This beauty is an example of my vision for the perfect bridal bouquet!
It has color and texture, the size is just right and the flower mix is incredible.
You can discover so many flowers but, I think the main attraction is the red Pink Ice Protea and the Frittilaria Tulips which give the color touch. The anemone, butterfly ranunculus and dogwood ad the sweetness and delicacy.
In the end, the delicate english garden roses ad the romantic touch, all the small filler flowers give texture and the variety of leaves complete the design!
I will never get tired of remaking this amazing flower, over and over again. With every peony I make I discover something new about it… the petal diversity is incredible!
Pink peonies and blue hydrangea make such a vibrant and joyful combination… I had the opportunity to use these lovely mix of flowers in a bouquet!
When it comes to pastel tones of color, it can’t get any sweeter then this… a mix of pale pinks, blush, nude, pale yellow, and lilac! The paper peonies look so romantic and diverse, the garden roses have layers and layers of petals, the lisianthus is so delicate, the lilac and baby’s breath are like drops of cuteness and the dahlia is the main focus of this incredible mix of flowers.
This bouquet was designed to fulfill the bride’s vision of the perfect wedding bouquet: purple centered anemone, sage leaves, navy berries, lunaria and soft pastels.
