Autumn Screen

Glue twigs.

Glue in twigs to create a flat panel. I find it best to glue each twig at at least three places to make sure it is strong enough to suspend.

Dried leaves

To continue the flat panel I used pressed leaves so that only the fresh flowers add depth to the design. I press my leaves in an old telephone book.

Glue the leaves to the screen with a tiny drop of hot glue

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.
