Forest Filigree Christmas wreath floral art design

I wanted my Hazel twig wreath to look like forest filigree: mysteriously overgrown, tangled with age and dappled with moss and lichen.

A bit of a ghost of Christmas past, as if its been left outside in the garden for years.

Over the coming Festive weeks it will only look prettier as the lichen and moss grows and it weathers from being exposed to the elements...

and impatiently waits to catch a few glistening snowflakes.

Yes, I am indeed dreaming of a white Christmas... Its rare, I know, but still.

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.
