    Paper Roses

    My Mum taught me how to make these crepe paper flowers as a child, I'm still making them.
    Biggest problem now is finding the thick double sided crepe paper.

    It comes to me now..... your work reminds me of trompe l' oeil " to deceive the eye" - Objects exist in three dimensions. This is one very poor example ....

    compared to yours......

    The mad thing is that the double-sided crepe paper used is now manufactured in Germany but the only retailers who sell it that we can find appear to be in the USA, so we may have to get some sent from the far side of the Atlantic by a retailer who has already had it sent across the Atlantic the other way by the wholesaler. What's that about keeping air miles down?
