This bouquet is an arrangement of paper carnation flower (tutorial here), paper gerbera daisy flower (tutorial here), and dusty miller leaves.

In the previous gerbera daisy tutorial, I have shared a little dusty miller leaves but I’m not happy with it yet, as it’s not realistic.

White dusty miller leaves are quite an important foliage in many other next tutorials, so I kept thinking to make it better, and I would like to share how I made paper dusty miller leaves here.

For the paper dusty miller

  1. Get the cotton cardstock (the one has a soft texture like watercolor paper).
  2. Download template and cut the leaves.
  3.  Wrap the wire gauge20 with white floral tape, the tape exceeds the top of the wire a little bit so that we will have a smaller tip top here.
  4. Glue the wire with the leaf.
  5. Mix up white (~85%), black (7%) and blue (7%) watercolor
  6. Deep color the paper leaf in watercolor and get it dried.
  7. Use the stylus to create the leaf’s vein and edge curves.
  8. Use the sandpaper to help the leaf get the soft texture.
