Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

I found it this way: Spiderweb design

This is the first design I did for my "I found it this way" Floral art demonstration at the Capilano Flower Arranging Club .
As the temperature starts to cool down here in Vancouver and we are heading into early autumn, we are all starting to spend more time indoors, we looked at nests crafted outdoors.

Spiderweb floral art design

A spider uses his own body to measure the size of the web he builds

Spiderweb strands

Spiders spin both sticky and non sticky strands so that they can move around on the web.

Dense hairs on the spider's body creates a non stick barrier

Spiderwebs are rich in Vitamin K

Spiderwebs are rich in Vitamin K, which is responsible for blood clotting and if applied to a wound helps healing and reduce bleeding.

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.
