Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Kenzan leaf rack

Design note: Now normally I would remove the messy pollen from the lily but in this design I left the golden stamens to drop gently onto the petals to bring out the gold in the autumn leaves. See the Tutorial below if you want to rather remove the messy pollen.

Press the Kenzan onto the design container and twist. This creates a seal and the Kenzan is secured to the container.

See the Tutorial below for detailed instructions on how to secure a Kenzan

Add another Kenzan

For this design I placed two Kenzans in the bottom of my container, with a tiny gap between them.

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.
