Set the spider-mum into the design

Set the spider-mum into the design. You can let the chrysanthemum wither up adding more character or (as I did in this design) add a tiny test tube to keep the disk floret hydrated

See the Tutorial below for more detailed instructions on how I make tiny test tubes from drinking straws.

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.
