A closer look at Arlene's technique

In a past blog I stated that my hats and fascinators are the best made in America and gave you several reasons why. One of the reasons was that my hand made flowers are not only beautiful but also because they are different from anyone else's flowers.  Here is a close up look at one type flower that I make, which I call blended flowers. These three views are of flowers that have been made by taking apart silk flowers, making and adding more petals made of either organza or crepon sheer and finishing them off with custom stamens.  You will see that the crepon sheer picks up the light and adds a little glint in the sun.
