Yesterday was the Paper Flowers class at Los Poblanos.
We had 6 attendees and they were so enthusiastic and extremely talented ladies (!)
The packets for the class were filled with papers of all sorts and a bag of buttons and beads.
The first flowers we made were from old phone book pages. They are simple and, honestly, the paper is great to work with - newsprint. It is a great weight and rather non-threatening.... and the yellow pages make from some mighty-fine flower petals.
Here are some of those first ones that we made.....aren't they great? They are wrapped around real twigs to help them look more realistic.
Everyone was concentrating so hard on getting the blossoms "built"
.......... I hope they were having fun at the same time.
I think that the results (below) are representative of the creative minds at work and how they were able to take the information I gave them and run with it.... just beautiful.....
Aren't these lovely?! The assortment of flowers is so fun and the whimsical styles add so much to the charm of each bouquet.
I think they look pretty elegant against the black tablecover, too.
All in all, a great day.
Despite the chilly temperature, wind and drizzle going on outside, we added some sunshine to the world with our cheerful bouquets.
