Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Vanilla

South African Flower Union show

This design was staged as a member of the South African Flower Union, Western Cape.

I made a vanilla “wafer” shape out of paper bark and used fresh vanilla pods as accents. The rest of the design is made up of indigenous South African fynbos In contemporary design terms a “vanilla design” is a design without gimmicks or optional extras

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
