My creative workbook

Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design


This week's design is part of a challenge issued by Sherry Donnelly of Gertie Mae’s Floral Studio , Alicia Schwede, owner of Bella Fiori and and Chuck Graham, Floral designer at BLOOM by Anuschka and Flirty Fleurs floral blog, where the designs are featured.

The rules:
Create a design using only materials collected from the area immediately surrounding the space you usually design in. We could use foliages, berries, fruits, etc – but NO flowers.
I must admit... I was absolutely spoilt for choice here in beautiful Vancouver (Bristish Columbia, Canada), I could even be fussy and choose the exact colour scheme I wanted. Within a few minutes I had an entire bag full of salmon pink autumn foliage for my very fishy-inspired design!

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.
