Star white Kanzashi. Silk Organza Tsumami Zaiku.

This one is another design in silk organza. You can see some of the transparency again, and what it looks like with slightly larger petals. You can actually see the support through the flower-- isn't that unique? It looks as though the fabric has a unique pattern!

I made this with the tsumami zaiku technique. We at TZArtisan are making a book-- a print book-- with tutorials like how to make the petals, differences in fabrics (done by me :heart:) and a number of other things! I'm also doing some small "commentary" tutorials on how to design and create original flowers-- or snowflake inspired kanzashi like this... please do keep an eye out for our kickstarter! We want this book to happen!  More information in my journal TBA. :heart:

This is charming. It would look good on a little flower girl or at Easter time.

Organza makes such beautiful flowers. I really like its texture ans transperency. It makes these pretty little snowflakes look even more delicate. And you know I am super hyped for your book to come out. :D

I agree, organza is so interesting!! I like this example-- because it shows off some of its better sides.

I'm super hyped too~~~ I can't wait to see it finalized. We're not actually gonna be FINISHED until April, but the kick-starter is to reserve ISBN numbers, to pay for the printing, and a score of other costs-- so yeah, haha, I'm going to be talking about the book for the next 2 weeks... I'm trying to help with spreading the word-- it is SO expensive to publish a book!!!! So we've got our work cut out for us. But I'll try and comment on interesting bits whenever I can. So no one gets bored of me saying "hey, book?" :XD:

I'll help you spread the word! Once you get the kickstarter I will probably psot about it like wildfire. And I knoooow publishing is so expensive. I've been saving up money to publish my books for years. u_u

Will you be publishing a novel? That sounds exciting!!
also, thank you for offering! I'd be super pleased. I'm pretty much only on deviantART regularly. :blushes:

Exciting as it may seem, it's really just a lot of money-spending and paperwork lol
