Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.
Using dry and fresh floral material in one design without the dry becoming soggy and the fresh drying out.
When you glue a structure with hot glue there are always a few stray strands of glue stuck all over the design. Blow it away with a hairdryer.
Craft a light and airy grass halo to suspend tiny drop crystals around gorgeous roses.
Preserve some floral material to design with when it is but not quite Autumn outside.
A great do-in-advance and reusable design solution for a winter, early spring floral display.
Create a light and transparent collar-base for the large composite flower to nestle into.
Glue twig snippets to closely follow the shape of a glass vase
This is a great way to use all those bits of twigs and sticks in your design room to make a floral armature
Place the floral details strategically on the edge of sturdier parts of the armature to keep the reed grid from collapsing under the weight of the floral details.
Crafted from a hand full of twigs to give you a large design... even though you add only two stems of sweet peas.
Glue Popsicle sticks to create a double layered, upright armature
A glued snipped to create a cooling cone for dangling orchids
Glue a band of snow dusted twigs to create a delicate armature for winter treasures.
Light and airy... like a wonderful breeze on a hot summer day grass and erigeron display.
Grass crisscross that makes you want to lean in closer to count the late summer raindrops around these gorgeous roses.
Floral styling using mostly dried material that will last the entire Autumn.
A creative design that has some height to it without blocking the view. This can easily be scaled up or down to match the environment you want to display it in.
A delicate winter twig armature to show off the delicate beauty of these early spring coloured tulips.
Soft minimal Fall armature making it easy to replace the flowers as the season progress.
Instead of just placing a handful of twigs and two stems of sweet peas in a vase... why not...?
A clever trick borrowed from art techniques to add dimension to a bright and colourful Autumn floral design.
Glue a fantasy forest from Popsicle sticks, grape vine tendrils and willow tips
