What are your favorite colors?

Blue has been a favorite color of mine lately. I love the brightness and lightness from a rich shade of aqua as well as darker and richer shades too.  Lately I’ve also gravitated towards a lighter blue.  I found myself crushing on periwinkle as well though I couldn’t remember the name.  It is such a lovely combination of light blue and lavender.

Here are some lovely periwinkle inspirations:

DIY Decor: How to make large paper magnolias for a nursery or party

Spring has me thinking about flowers.

Unfortunately, nice fresh flowers aren’t always easy to find around me.  I resorted to making paper flowers so they could brighten a room even when I couldn’t find fresh flowers (see my large paper pansies here).  I started thinking about other flowers with large petals that could easily be made with cardstock.

I decided on a bright, exaggerated magnolia.  They are also quite large with a radius of about two feet.  They are meant to make a bold statement and will be a great addition to the flower wall for my daughter’s room.
