Paper flowers / Flori de hartie

Hello,

Here are some new (at least for me...) paper flowers I created last week with a wedding bouquet in mind
The first is a pink rose:

then comes a ranunculus flower colored with COPICs:


and the last one is a white and pink flower which I think needs to be named because I do not know if it exists in nature or not...:))

Aquarelle paper necklaces / Medalioane din hartie pentru acuarela

Hello and Happy new year everyone!

So we have just begun a new year...for me this meant a new technique to try :)
This is a technique I learned watching Ross Barbera's videos on Youtube.
The first step was to create my patterned  paper using acrylic paints. Here's one I made yesterday and now is ready to use:


Then, I made may templates  from sturdier cardstock and cut a few pieces of plain aquarelle paper an one piece from the painted one.
After gluing everything together and varnishing the pendant to make it waterproof, here are the finished necklaces:





 With this technique... the sky is the limit...so there are more pieces to come in this collection...:)
Enjoy!
Update:  Here's another one...my favorite so far...:)
