Behind the Lens: D.I.Y. Paper Flower Fun

I get some serious inspiration from pinterest and the amazing artists I have the pleasure of being surrounded with here in London. Today's inspiration comes from the amazing paper artist Laura of 2clvr 4 u designs

I recently worked with Laura on a few small pieces for my London Bridal Expo booth decor, and now am excited to be working on a much bigger project even closer to my heart.

I admit, when I spend time looking at the work of, or being around these amazing artists, I become inspired! I want to try my hand at their arts. I want to create with my hands something beautiful that I can be proud of.

After an afternoon with Shannon of Sweet Stellas I found myself painting and sculpting for days. Did they turn out at beautifully as Shannon's art? Heck no, not even close!

This time I found inspiration in Laura's work but recognized that I had neither the tools or talent for designing, cutting, and sculpting the beautiful paper flowers the way she does. Don't get me wrong, I was still determined to create something beautiful. Where did I go next? To pinterest of course! I found tutorials and printable templates and with a little patience, I made my first paper flowers that actually somewhat resemble flowers!

Take a few minutes to check out Laura's work (you won't be sorry!) on facebook or etsy. She's adding new blooms all the time!

If after staring at these beautiful blooms you're feeling inspired, off to pinterest you go! Find the printable templates for these flowers plus other interesting DIY projects on my DIY Pinterest Board!
