1000 Petals

Posted on | Tuesday, February 9, 2010 | 4 Comments

I estimated that for the Novel Romance show, I hand cut about 1000 petals. I made a bunch of flowers from hand dyed cottons and silks to fashion into head pieces. I still have a few flowers remaining, but isn't that nuts? Here are a couple photos I snapped before the flowers were finished:

    These look beautiful - even the cut out negatives look fantastic. Beautiful colours too.
