I was such a tom boy was I was younger. I was the one girl who was NOT afraid of the boys! Let one of those boys mess with one of my friends, well, he would have been scared the next day to walk back in class..LOL. Tough as a rock and never would let my guard down. I didn't like pink and never was about dressing up. I wouldn't sit still long enough for ANYONE to mess with my hair, let alone paint my nails! I was too busy climbing trees and defending our fort from the boys. They were always trying to steal our stuff.
Well, I have to say that little girl started shedding her tough skin and found a passion that she never thought was there. Making flowers for some is a hobby or a thought of the day idea for most. To me, I have learned so much about myself. This, for me, is a passion. I truly have to say that making these flowers takes me to a place where I get to know myself better. There is nothing better than sitting and sculpting paper into something beautiful. It's almost as if all the beauty I was guarding from others comes out in my flowers when I create them. My guard is still up high and is a constant battle to tear down.
Maybe this is something I was meant to do to help myself in other areas of my life.
I could write a book...lol. The lessons of making paper flowers! :) Well, for now let me just show you a few thigns I have been working on.
I started to create large roses. Which I actually got to look right and love them on the stems! My fav so far! There was a bit of trouble trying to get the stamens to look right in the larger roses. The bigger the rose the higher the centers were and the stamens are only so tall. I got it and I think they look great!
I also worked on a few frames over the weekend. I wanted to put some in my shop but the ones I made sold before I ever go them listed. Here is one that I got a picture of:
These frames make a great gift and they would look super cute at a wedding with the bride and groom's picture in it! Display it on the table along with a book for people to write comments to the couple wishing the well with the life they will share. My mind goes wild with ideas for decorating with my flowers.
Well, I hope to share some more flowers with you soon! I have a few special orders that are turning out to be very pretty and can't wait to share with you all!
Enjoy your week!
