Purple birds and flowers

I wanted to try another kusudama from the book "Hana no kusudama" by Mariko Kubo. There are a lot of lovely models and it is very hard for me to choose a new one to fold, since I did not manage to finish all the color combinations I had in mind for the previous models. But lately I wanted to make a three-petals flower, so I took a chance with this one.
It was easy to fold - even though are a lot of modules and took me a lot of time to do it, but hard to assembly. I sew them as it was written in the instructions, but the shape isn't as round as it should be. Next time (if there will be a next one) I will use an Electra base.
I tried a every daring combination from my point of view - purple with neon-orange and grass green.
I also took a chance with another bird model, one from a NOA magazine. I combined them with a strong package model (Tomoko Fuse's model).

Sunflower kusudama

I am back with another sunflower design. This time it is origami and a little bit of quilling. 
I managed to get together the flowers from this post: http://cridiana-origami.blogspot.com/2018/07/sunflower.html in a kusudama.

The base is made from an electra model: http://cridiana-origami.blogspot.com/2012/04/tutorial-electra.html
There are 12 flowers made from an adaptation of this diagram: http://stranamasterov.ru/node/133487?tid=451,850
Then there are 20 little buds to fill in the corners.

Light and shadows - sunflower

Long time no see! I am very lazy these days. I also broke the promise I made at the beginning of the year to post at least once per week. I broke it this summer and it seems that I am breaking it also in the autumn. I have some models that I have to post and I have a lot of kusudamas started, but not yet finished so I hope I will get back on track as soon as possible.

I am very happy that I managed to post today the lovely crepe paper sunflowers I made in the middle of the summer. As I said before, I am very found of sunflowers and I try to make them each year (if you want to follow my series click this link: http://cridiana-origami.blogspot.com/search/label/sunflower). I tried of lot of models and I am happy with all the results.
Usually I am making them for kusudamas, but this time I made a three-flower arrangement for a small vase. Crepe-paper flowers are in top of my preferences when I have to make flowers in vases. I hope you also like them. Enjoy the pics!

Autumn rays of light brighten the flowers of the sun.

Here is a lovely tutorial for a complex version of the flowers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwIRzTYhn7Q&t=18s
