Waiting for flowers - transparent

While I was impatiently waiting for the first flowers to appear (and especially the snowbells!) I made some for the window. I was following the same book as usual (Mit farbigen Transparenten durch das Jahr, Kronshage und Schwartz).  The real challenge was to make this, while in the backround the children went through innumerous fights over - I don't know... "you are in my space" "I am not" and "don't drink the coffee" "I'm not" etc. :)

I am looking forward to the first flowers.


  1. So pretty! What kind of paper do you use - tissue paper (Seidenpapier) or a more sturdy type?

  2. Thank you!
    I used transparent paper mostly (the more study type, especially for the white "base layer"), but if i need more gradual or softer colours, i also use tissue paper. https://www.amazon.de/Herlitz-246413-Transparentpapier-Blatt-5-er/dp/B00CW5YKC0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1516727024&sr=8-3&keywords=transparentpapier and this https://www.amazon.de/Seidenpapier-Sortiment-21x29-Blatt-Farben/dp/B00VG806QS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516727209&sr=8-1&keywords=seidenpapier.

  3. Thanks for the links, that helps a lot!
