Crepe paper, wire, adhesive, sinamay, felt, elastic, foam head, wood plaque, acrylic

One of my projects was to create giant flowers for a parade float. As I was creating the Bougainvilleas, naturally I wanted to see how they would look on my head. Who wouldn't? And of course they looked fabulous! I shipped off the parade flowers and then created this piece to wear around town.
Get to Know the Austin Artist:
I am a mostly self taught life long crafter who has just recently become comfortable calling herself an Artist. I find Paper floral art to be ever evolving as there are an endless variety of plants and flowers to replicate. I now see fresh flowers and rip them apart to study their construction.
