Journey to EMOZ - to the one and only museum for origami in Europe in Spain
May 20th was my mom's birthday. A special one - it was her 70th. And exactly on that day I received an email from the museum asking me if I would like to be a part in an exhibition by the end of the year.
What an amazing birthday present since I couldn't celebrate with mom.
I needed to 2 days to calm myself down. Unfortunately I was not very successful. I'm literally freaking out.
I get to submit up to 12 arrangements and they pick what they think is suitable for their exhibition. So no pressure at all.
I have tons of work to do. I just started my business that I have to maintain and now I need to create arrangements that can fulfill the honor of being displayed in a museum.
Thank god a have some arrangements at home that are presentable but it's certainly not enough. So I thought I should dedicate my blog entries talking about and showing how to create honorable flower arrangements. Let this be the journey to fun, creativity and beauty!
I will let everybody be a part of traveling to my creative mind which is often a bit chaotic. When I start creating something I have a vision but never a clear picture. I usually start with picking a color theme - which means coloring the paper. After that I start folding the blossoms. And this is where I'm at right know.
I have folded approximately 90 blossoms so far. And guess what - I even made a tutorial. My first tutorial! I didn't get the chance to edit it. It already took forever taping it. I have to say it is very difficult to fold without having my fingers in your visual way. Honestly there is no chance for me to get everything done in a satisfying way. I can't get around my two boys. Although there are 9 and 12 years old they still need me. At least to cook dinner and for doing the laundry. I promise I will work on the editing part when I'm done with all my arrangements.
Look at the pictures. It's always the same blossom but looks totally different - this is why the blossom is called Manifold Flower.
