Blown Away

Kyogi paper was historically used in Japan to wrap food - all natural, keeps the food from drying out, adds a subtle flavour and it can be composted to return to the crop-soil-cycle! It is pine (or cedar) wood that is shaved so thin it's almost transparent. It can be wrapped, rolled, cut, stained, torn and easily glued.
This was a Floral Trends Design Group Assignment arrangement

It is also extremely light weight and can easily be Blown Away and thrashed into a tangle of curls.

To stay with the Japanese theme I placed Phalaenopsis Orchids scattered like blossoms blowing in the wind.

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.
