Bloom with Jessie
Today's technology allows me to reach you even if you can't make my workshops in person! You can find some of the flowers I've taught at my workshops as well as other flowers that I love making and teaching, right here on this page. Under each flower is a description of what you can expect to learn from me and how you can access the learning experience with me. Come bloom with me!
TAG your work with the hashtag #bloomwithjessie to show off any flowers you make from my tutorials or courses!
Ideal for Intermediate students (or students with previous experience making paper flowers)
In this course, you will learn my unique technique of creating a stamen that would allow the petals to swirl organically outwards from the flower centre. You will also learn the trick to rose petal placement - the trickiest part of making a floribunda rose - so that the petals look naturally placed, yet deliberate.
Some of the other skills and techniques you will learn:
To make a fringed stamen
To colour your stamen with a common seasoning
To reduce bulk on the stems
To manipulate petals so they look natural
To tint the petals
To create a generic leaf stem for roses
This was one of my breakthrough flowers. While designing and creating this flower, I discovered techniques that elevated my paper floral artistry. I've been able to transfer many of the skills I learned from designing this flower to other types of roses and flowers. This might be the breakthrough flower for you too!
There are so many types of wild roses, and some of them are native to the prairie provinces. This is only my interpretation of this flowering shrub, which come in white, yellows, and pinks.
Here's what you'll learn from this course. I teach basic paper flower making techniques, but not without adding in some special touches. You'll learn:
How to make a simple pistil using floral tape
How to make a stamen and create the pollen from pastels
How to cut petals and colour them for detail
How to manipulate the flower petals to look real
How to assemble the petals to the stem to create a "perpetual overlap" of naturally-looking petals
How to make a standard flower or rose leaf stem
This course is perfect for Beginners. Intermediates and Advanced paper florists and/or crafters will also find this course helpful and insightful.
