So this is Christmas, I hope you had fun…

Christmas Flower Trends 2012: A Contemporary Christmas inspired by Classic Christmas lyrics

Capilano Flower Arranging Club Designing for Christmas Workshop: Yule log

Bark filled with gyp.

So this is Christmas

Hang a few baubles from mossy twigs.

and what have you done

Gypsophila and bark Yule log

another year's over

Mossy twigs and baubles.

and a new one's begun

Rosary vine curl over the design

and so this is Christmas

Rest a hazel branch over the bark.

I hope you had fun

Wire to hang baubles from.

the near and the dear one

Baby’s breath, bark, hazel and rosary vine winter Christmas

the old and the young

So this is Christmas, I hope you had fun floral art design.

A Merry, Merry Christmas…

Title from "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" is a song written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono and released in 1971

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.
