Happy New Year!

A Pocket full of Starlight floral art design

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket

Knot a Cordyline Catcher for the Gerbera

Never let it fade away

Add a few petals and beads as New Year sparkle

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket

Sprinkle with a few black beads

Save it for a rainy day

31 December 2012 Knot a Cordyline Catcher

Create a rigid grid to place over a glass vase to keep flower material in place

25 September 2013 Adding beads into a design

I wanted my beads to softly float above my snowball posy. If I glued the beads to some of the flowers it would just disappear in the mass of twigs and flowers.
