Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Of trust… and belief… and stars…

Of trust and belief and stars floral art design

"Are you listening?"

Wrap and weave and twirl ripped flax to create a summer floral nest.

"Yes," said Tiffany

Wrap the tendrils, vine and ripped foliage around the wire armature.

"Good. Now… if you trust in yourself…"

Passiflora vines


Passion fruit flower.

"… and believe in your dreams…"

Dangle long stems of rosary vine loosely down the design


Add green and purple dried hydrangea flowers.

"… and follow your star…" Miss Tick went on.

Hang the design to twirl freely


Bits of flat wire peeps out of the messy plant material nest

"… you'll still get beaten by people who spend their time working hard and learning things…"

A bit of free advice from Miss Tick (The Wee Free Men written by Terry Pratchett)

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.
