After a short break my creative project #daphnerosainbloom is back with a vengeance & September’s bloom is the rose. Having planned out all of my flowers for the year September was originally destined to be the hydrangea but when they started popping up in my instagram feed in July I switched things around a little which means the rose has now been bumped up to this month. If you’re new around here & would like to see what I’ve been up to in previous months you can check them out by clicking on the pics…
Wow, it’s actually kinda cool to see a little summary of everything I’ve done so far all together! The original purpose of this creative project for the year was a) to allow myself the freedom to create without agenda or purpose b) to experiment with different flowers to see what I could create & c) to develop skills using different techniques & materials. I’ve definitely been ticking these boxes so far & don’t want to stop now, my only hurdle is that I already make & sell fabric roses…
These leather pretties are actually my best seller in the etsy shop at the mo & have been flying out across the globe recently as a popular pressie for the 3rd wedding anniversary which is leather. So this will be the first month in which I have already created the flower in question in 1 shape or another which is not a problem, it just requires me to think differently about how I will work with it to ensure I am still developing ideas & skills.
Firstly there are many different roses I can study which will provide me with a wealth of information & hopefully ideas as to how I can continue to work inventively this month. I am also probably going to work in 2D as I have already created a 3D version & I have enjoyed working in 2D in previous months. So here’s hoping I can come up with something new & fun & you’ll enjoy seeing the progress again as I go! If you have any favourite rose varieties you think would be interesting for me to look at pleased do let me know below.
Have a great week peeps!
