Just Right! Floral Art demonstration: Just Right!

This is the third design I did for my Just Right! Floral Art demonstration at the BC Floral Art Society club meeting

Rip sheets of Kyogi paper in long strips.

My four designs explored the Goldilocks Principle and how designers can use it to keep their enthusiasm for their floral art work alive.

When we are designing, it is possible to be influenced by extremes.

Weave the strips through the wire.

On the one hand, if your work becomes predictable and you remain in your comfort zone you will become bored with your designs,or if you work in the opposite extreme and your work is always too hard to do you will become frustrated and give up.

What you want is to find your own Just right!

Design 3: Just Right!
This is our "bed" design. It is a comfortable fit with just the right scale of difficulty woven in.

Floral Art demonstration design Just Right.

Find your pace where you challenge yourself just enough to keep growing,

keep things exciting...

Curl the Kyogi paper over the flowers and test tubes.

and keep your work alive.

Loosing track of time is a sign that you have found "just right."

The Kyogi paper is woven through wire spikes to create an opened crescent shape and metallic blue Sea holly and single Delphinium flowers are cushioned in a bed of Kyogi paper curls.

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.
