Creativity reaches new heights with the work of a 22-year-old student in Singapore, Grace Ciao. Instead of using ink or fabric, Ciao creates her designs with an unexpected, but beautiful medium: flower petals.
Ciao told Buzzfeed that this creative idea was purely accidental. A boy had given her a red rose and she wished to preserve it.
Clearly, her idea was brilliant. Ciao currently has over 20,000 followers on Instagram and her beautiful petal designs have been featured on a number of media outlets.
When asked about her most favorite flowers to work with, Ciao responded that she favors flowers with multiple shades.
“They help me create prints which I otherwise couldn’t have thought of,” she explained “I think petals work really well for illustration also because their delicacy and exquisiteness mimic those of a soft fabric.”
