Design Note:
Look out for all the dark, almost black flowers- it will be a leading floral design trend for 2012

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.
