Add the rosary vine

Anchor the rosary vines by slipping them under the pebble. Make sure it is just anchored and not squished.

Place the oncidium orchids.

Place the oncidium orchids to be anchored by the rock. I used two ways: the first is to hook the lip of the orchid over the small pebble so that it is kept in place and looks like it is leaning over the pebble. The second way is the slip the curve of the orchid stem slightly under the pebble so that the weight of the pebble keeps the stem in place without constricting it..

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.
