Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

So far so green

To gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
To throw a perfume on the violet,
To smooth the ice, or add another hue
Unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish,
Is wasteful and ridiculous excess.

From Shakespeare's King John (1595) Act IV. Sc. 2, spoken by Salisbury

So far so green floral art design.

These are the most perfect miniature avocado green arum lilies,

So far so green Chameleon.

Beautiful, just as they are.

Guacamole Green Coiled Grass Chameleon.

They need absolutely nothing more.

Except maybe for an admirer…

Green arum lilies and Chameleon.

…or two!

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.
