All things Autumn (by which I mean all things chocolate): Snipped into Sections

This is the second design I did for my All things Autumn (by which I mean all things chocolate) floral art demonstration at the BC Floral Art Society .

Chocolate as currency:

Snipped into Sections floral art design

In Mayan times cocoa beans were used as currency

Weaved grass between the snipped sections

and was more

valuable than gold dust.

Woven grass snippets

Cultivation of the beans

were restricted so that the value

of cocoa beans as currency would not decline.

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.
