Bird of Paradise

This delicate Bird of Paradise Sprite comes to say: 
" Stay open to new possibilities and seek your freedom wherever you can find it.
Explore the world with a sense of optimism and excitement."

When do you use a Bird of Paradise blossom in a floral Arrangement?
for the 9th wedding anniversary
to represent the freedom and the ability to travel,
 (because of the flower's resemblance to birds in flight)
Royalty and Regal bearing
Paradise on Earth
Joy through challenges and successes alike
Faithfulness in Romantic Relationships
Optimism towards the future

The Bird of Paradise Sprite is worked in prismacolor pencils, and accented with stickles, rhinestones and enamel dots.  Edges are distressed and sponged in distress inks and mounted on Old Olive (SU) and SU black designer paper from the  Botanical Garden series.  She is done for the Air, Fire Water or Earth, Challenge #55 at Aurora  Wings.


  1. Gorgeous coloring on Bird of Paradise Sprite, Priss and I love the info you've shared. Perfect paper, too. The green mat and black background really show him off. So excited to see the second round of our Bird of Paradise starting to show. Thanks so much for joining us at Aurora Wings. xxD

  2. I love reading your post with info on the language of flowers and everything, Priss! This is such a unique flower and I don't see this sprite used by very many people, so it's such a pleasure to see this lovely creation by you. Thank you for joining us at Aurora Wings! Mitzi xx
