It is so hard to pick only one of my lotus flowers to photograph and feature in each of my blog posts. This week it was especially hard as I have been playing with all sorts of decorative papers. I am no longer content with traditional green leaves. I have been experimenting with gold, silver and all sorts of different papers for leaves. I even made an all white lotus flower.
I am having so much fun experimenting with different papers. I use papers constantly in bookbinding and box making, but folding the lotus flowers is different. I need a paper that is “soft,” but not too soft to get the best result.
