Add the orchids to nestle in the grass, using the blades to help the slippers stand upright. To add visual interest I added a few curled lily grass blades. See the Tutorial below for detailed instructions on how to curl grass

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.
