Floral Fridge magnet in a nutshell

I glued tiny water filled drinking straws at a slight angle into the nutshell to give the plant material a water source. But both the Kalanchoe 'Calandiva Pink' flowers and the Ceropegia woodii leaves will remain turgid out of water for at least a few days. The variegated grass will dry and curl slightly but will keep it's shape tucked under the rosary vine.

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.
