I've got my head in the clouds
This design was part of my 2010 Fusion Flowers Magazine Designer of the year competition portfolio
Oasis Design 1
My design was inspired by clouds. I made the dreamy wax shape by dipping hot wax into cold water to form the swirling white clouds.
The purple tulips and roses are placed with their heads floating in the clouds.
Disks cut out of purple Rainbow Oasis holds the flower tubes perfectly upright and is placed in the squiggle shape a child would draw a cloud.
The plaited tulips are used to emphasize the dreamlike and experimental quality of the design
