My creative workbook

Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design


To floral art design

"My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry:

Orchids and rosary vine

to get my work done

Phalaenopsis orchids

and try to love somebody

Twig armature for phalaenopsis orchids and rosary vine

and have the courage

Drape sisal fibers over the design to soften it

to accept the love in return."

Quote by Maya Angelou 1928-2014

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.




Phalaenopsis, Moth orchid

Ceropegia woodii
