@kristenspa:  In the first pic, the book page flowers look like an after thought. They are not incorporated into the bouquet, but seem perched on the outside of the bouquet. I don’t think the tissue paper flowers and the book page flowers work well together.

The other version is too rigid. Everything is precisely placed and too even.

Try for something a little less rigid, but mixing it up more.

Not sure how you feel about mixing paper flowers and fake/silk flowers. That’s what I needed up doing and I’m very happy with how it turned out.

@kristenspa:  The coffee filter bouquet can still work. Just make the blue flowers smaller (like carnation size, instead of peony size). that way you can arrange clusters of blue flowers with your book page flowers and have it feel more like a real bouquet (instead of trying to mix together 2 large flowers).

 

sort of like these:

I like the BM’s flowers better than yours because of the three different colors (it adds depth).  Try adding that softer/sheer between the blues.

P.S. I am making my own flowers too and its is frustrating but you have a great vision and wonderful progress…you are almost there!  Keep it up!

@julies1949:  I love that idea! 

@kristenspa:  I love the idea of maybe printing something on your colored paper and making them so the dont stand out so much like in your origionals.  I think both came out very nicely , what if you make the printed flower smaller then the others ? i love this idea, and the other images people poasted were great! ide love to see what you end up doing,,,

@kristenspa:  I would think about making the paper flowers in different shapes of flowers not all the same. Maybe like this?

Also another way to incorporate the blue color is to spray paint the tip edge blue like these below. I think it would look better just to have all paper flowers with small amounts of blue

@weddingbound:  I love that first bouquet! I definitely plan on making paper bouquets for my wedding someday and I love seeing inspiration pics that are different that what I’ve found so far! Most of what I’ve seen is all just paper roses or kusudama flowers
