Purple spring

I adore spring, especially when the trees are in bloom.  I usually like to walk slowly and admire the reviving nature and listen to the birds. But this year I was so busy, that I didn't even notice my surroundings until I smelt a sweet fragrance. I looked up and I was almost shocked when I saw the flowers in the trees above me. I paced myself for a little while and an idea came. I had the perfect setting for photographing my latest origami model. So, the next day, I came with a camera and made this pics.
The moon is made using around 100 origami traditional flowers. I accessorized it with the mandarin bird (as I lately do to each of my models) and I associated it with 3 kusudamas - a model of Tomoko Fuse from the book "Unit origami fantasy". Each kusudama has 30 modules, made from square sheets of paper. I used a wrapping paper and I was afraid that it was to thin for this model, but I am glad that I worried for nothing.
I really enjoyed working on this arrangement, especially to the moon. It may be the first moon I've made of this design, but it won't be the last. I liked folding the traditional flowers. It have been a couple of years since I folded last this model, in the pink version:

Paper mobile - Spring

Just a perfect spring day: sun, birds chirping, lovely green leaves and an origami paper mobile with flowers and kusudamas.
This paper mobile is the brother of the one I made last year: I preserved the colors and the lilies, but I've changed the paper patterns and I used more kusudama models.

Paper mobile - Bunnies and pink flowers

Easter is coming, so folding bunnies is a must. When you have paper with bunny-pattern you will have even more bunnies, some folded, some printed. Since outside is spring, the birds that are chirping among pink flowers are also a must. This is how this paper mobile was built.

Paper mobile - Moon and blue unicorns

Time is not my friend these days, so I had to choose between folding my paper mobiles or trying to make less-crappy pictures and posting on my blog. That's why a couple of weeks passed before you heard anything from me.
I used the moon and the lucky stars combination again, this time mixed with origami diamonds and cute little unicorns. The beads are sparkling when the mobile spins, bringing a nice touch to the paper.
I bought this paper from Lidl last year, just before the Easter holidays. In the package there were a lot of cute patterns with rabbits and eggs and carrots. I used it for bunny paper mobiles (bunny paper mobile ver 2  and bunny paper mobile ver 1) so I wanted to try something else.

I present you a paper mobile custom made for a very sweet baby boy: guided by the moonlight the unicorns are flying between the stars.

Model: Unicorn
Modules: 2 (one is for the horse and the other one is what it makes it so special: the corn)

Model: Paper diamond
Modules: 2

Model: moon
