I chose the colour of my petals to match the cream edge on the Heliconia

I chose the colour of my petals to match the cream edge on the Heliconia. This creates a more muted, ethereal look. If you want the design to be bold pick a colour petal to bring out the brightest part of the Heliconia.

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.
