"A New Age" Child's Midnight Meander (Avatar)

Floral Art Show

The concept of the Competition Class was to design "A New Age Child's Midnight Meander" but to use a contemporary movie as inspiration. I chose Avatar. I wanted to recreate the beautiful blue scenery in the movie and used the blue glow of LED lights shining on the large open petals of white lilies.

Palm leaf FireFlies

Each LED light shine from a Palm leaf Firefly (see tutorials on how I made the fireflies) and was fixed to point towards a lily to create the ethereal blue shade.

Catching fireflies

I also tucked a few ball jars with handles and a few butterfly nets into the design to create the impression that children were trying to catch the fireflies.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

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.
