Seven to ten days with proper care. Avoid bright sunlight and humidity.
Beautiful small buds that look like tiny trumpets. Long stems can be woven into a design. Spiral in a glass vase. Although soft,the stems are still strong and can stand up in a vase.
Cut the stem at an angle and remove all the foliage that might fall below the conditioning water line. Place the stems in warm water with dissolved flower food for about two hours before designing.
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.
