My creative workbook

Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design


To celebrate the 6th year anniversary of My Creative Workbook I am looking at the most popular Tutorial I have done to date: Bubble raft to float flowers Since I posted this Design Tutorial in January 2012, it has been viewed by 107,000 unique visitors, and in a way it really has a life of its own now.

This is my re-take on the technique:

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.
