This is the first step of de-constructing a flower to re-make it in paper or fabric. Pluck from tree, admire and photograph :-)
Pull apart the flower and study the formation of the petals... admire some more....
Sketch the shapes of the petals and figure out how you will French tool them!
The circles drawn on the petals at the bottom left of the page is where I will use a round ball tool to press into the fabric to give the petal the shape it needs! Next step... cutting my fabric petals... to be continued!
