Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
Lightly sprinkled foliage frog
I wanted my design to be as light as air. For this I ripped a few fibrous leaves to create the thinnest strands. For a detailed Tutorial on ripping foliage (flax) see below
Slip a few strands of ripped foliage in a vase filled with a bit of water. No need to be precise, just let the ripped strands fall where it may
For visual interest I added a crystal ball...
Set the crystal ball slightly to the side
Continue to add strands of ripped foliage
Drop in two orchids to lightly rest on the ripped foliage. Cross a few strands over the design and secure with floral glue.
Place a water tube at an angle in lumber so that the Zantedeschia float just above the base to show off the delicate grass snippets scattered up the stem
Stack two vases to create a small gap at the side to keep a leaf upright
