Master The Garden Rose is a rewarding course to help you achieve a beautiful and organic looking rose from crepe paper. A culmination of rose study for over one year, I have included hand colouring techniques in this course to further the authenticity of your rose which will take your work beyond ordinary.
This course provides comprehensive details on how to colour your paper, shape the petals, and place your petals to achieve a stunning open rose with character and personality. Instruction on finishing the flower compactly and neatly are provided, ensuring your flower looks as good on the underside as it does head on.
Note: If you are new to paper flower making, I suggest taking my free course 'Elevate Your Petals From Stiff To Stunning' where you will learn the many ways to achieve the shapes and forms of petals you need to complete your next paper flower project.
Roses are a classic and timeless flower sought after for arrangements, bouquets and special events. So whether you are a seasoned paper flower artist, or an enthusiast looking to make flowers for an upcoming event or gift, focus on results with this course. You'll be astonished with the gorgeous rose, created by your hands, on your own time.
