A rose is a rose is a....






Made my first attempt on making roses... I cheated a bit though. The flowers are Mulberry paper roses but the foliage I made myself.

  1. Wow! Stunning! It is well proportional (is that the word? Hope you know what I mean: often the flowers are too big in relation, these aren´t) and looks so fragile.

    And I love the idea of the rose ball, too...

    May I ask? Do you have some more paper roses? Would you like to try and "age" one by browning the very edges of some single petals? It might make it just perfect...

    I am waiting for the better daylight to take some pics of the "jewels" you sent me. I really adore them all. I kept on arranging and pushing and planning yesterday night... thanks so much!
    But find more on my bears blog later, please.

    Your first attempt of roses could also be regarded as definitive, because they are amazing! You have the talent to create beautiful things always and only ...
    Your garden attracts me like Eden :-)

  5. Hi Annie.
    The rose bush looks stunning. You made the foilage look very real. Have you cut the leaves by hand or did you use a punch?

  9. A warm thanky you to all of you for your nice comments.

    Bea... So glad you liked what I sent you. I have made a comment on your blog :0) I havn´t got more roses, but it´s a great idea to try ageing some of the leaves. I´ll do that one day. I have to order more flowers in different colors.

    Flora...It´s never too late. I always appreciate your comments. I wish my garden to be a bit more alluring and lustfull than Eden ;0)

    Lene... I´ve used a petal punch for the leaves. Cut out in light green paper and then painted with a diluted acrylic paint to bring "life" to the leaves. I am really satiesfied with the way they turned out.

  11. This is one of the most incredible blogs Ive read in a very long time. The amount of information in here is stunning, like you practically wrote the book on the subject. Your blog is great for anyone who wants to understand this subject more. Great stuff; please keep it up!

  12. As an amateur writer from Brisbane, Australia, I rarely come across really well written publications like this blog which really helps me inspirationally. It shows me what superb postings are all about. There are tons of poor writings on the web and it's quite sad. Thank you for your well written posts! I frequently read your blog and enjoy the content you share. I look forward to more of your work.

  15. I don't think that's cheating. I call it "being resourceful".
