Once you have the basic circle shape add a few extra twigs to fill in any gaps and to add bulk. The more twigs you add the stronger the armature. Because I am adding quite a few test tubes filled with roses I wanted my armature to be very strong and balanced.

Make a second twig circle exactly the same size as the first.

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.
