That good old double vase trick
Create a dry layer by placing a smaller vase inside the larger vase
The two vases create a double layer
Pour water in the larger vase.
Place a few pebbles in the dry inside vase.
Add a few silver marbles
Sprinkle a thick layer of wax snow to float in the water.
See the Tutorial below for detailed instructions on how to make wax snow
And the slightest of dusting of snow to settle on the pebbles and marbles.
Arrange the fresh plant material in the water to stand (for the most part) parallel.
Any shape of vases can be used to create a glass layered design
You can even use more than two glass containers
Using the glass layers:
Place a candle in the dry inside vase and arrange the plant material around it
Or place a few skeleton leaves in the dry outside vase and flowers and water in the inside vase
See the Tutorial below for detailed instructions on how to make skeleton leaves
Slip a few play cards in the dry layer and arrange the flowers in the inside
Or post a secret note...
Or fruit... or weave some foliage... or add a few rose petals. Such a versatile trick!
Stack a few glass containers and fill each with water to a different level.
A submerged design... perfect for summertime designing... and enjoying!
