I found it this way: Wasp nest design

This is the second design I did for my "I found it this way" Floral art demonstration at the Capilano Flower Arranging Club .
As the temperature starts to cool down here in Vancouver and we are heading into early autumn, we are all starting to spend more time indoors, we looked at nests crafted outdoors.

Wasps build paper nests made from wood

The wasp finds suitable support for the nest...

... and slowly builds it up

Over the winter months the nest naturally degrades

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.
