Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Skipping stone

Floral Trends Design Group Assignment: Interpretive design:

The Nitty Gritty of Grass and Reeds

Skipping stone Floral Art design.

When I design I deliberately skip the first idea that I think of.

Monkey grass skipping stone.

The second idea is always better,

Cymbidium orchid and monkey grass.

but it will, without fail, be harder to do.

Weave a grass pebble for the orchid to nestle in.

Normally it’s also a lot more work.

Weaving a grass pebble.

Still, I skip that first idea, just to see what comes next.

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.
