Happy Easter!

Its Spring here in Vancouver and we are all taking a break this long Easter Weekend

Floral Spring cone

Happy Easter and Enjoy the Long Weekend! The posy is made up of spring blossoms, Gypsophilas, Alstroemeria and Cymbidium orchids. Bind the stems and wrap in a "cone" made of a banana leaf.

For another example of how I use a Banana Leaf to wrap flowers (instead of tissue paper or cellophane) look at my It’s a wrap design
Insert a floret with a weak or short stem into a hand tied or posy arrangement

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.
