Personal preference floral art demonstration design

I prefer more naturally crafted designs…

Floating orchids

... using nature as an inspiration.

With that being said: my best known design tutorial? Using Bubble-wrap to make flowers float! A few years ago I wanted to create a design for just after Christmas. Something minimal. I called the design Going Cold Twinkle Turkey ... and it just took off! It is probably the furthest away from "natural" you can imagine.

Making flowers float with bubble wrap

But it does appeal to my love for minimal designs.

Using nature as inspiration for floral design

I like each flower to shine in it's own right...

... rather than collected to create a massive display.

Minimal flowers for the maximum impact in flower arranging

That's my personal...

Floral art inspired by nature

... preference

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.
