This style of monochromatic rose has popped up on some of my personal paper flower idols’ Tiffanie Turner and Jennifer Tran’s Instagram, so I thought I’d give it a try.

I found that taking natural colour contrast away helped me focus on the way the petals and calyx (the little leafy part under the petals), and the leaves all interacted.

I’m certainly going to incorporate these into my work – esp. the ‘ghost rose’, which I’m slightly obsessed with.
