Floral Design Day

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Floral Design Day is the perfect day to appreciate and create floral arrangements.

Here at Christmas in July we want to see your floral design items. These could be a drawing of flowers,photographs,bouquets and so much more…

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo says this is my made in Italy spring wreath: tender green and fuchsia! It’s one-of-a-kind gorgeous wreath, its colors are cheery and intense and create a vivid contrast against the dark base.

The crown is made by a multitude of gnarled twigs, woven together and closed in an invisible wire structure. It’s a so very beautiful twine that l decided to do not decorate all, just to let you appreciate its beauty.

Here and there l added some stabilized moss * : as you know, in the spring meadows get greener, and then l decorated with fuchsia hyacinth and green buttercups.

The color contrast is outstanding and the final sight impact is extremely pleasant.

This decorative wreath will never be unseen everywhere you put it: it’s perfect on your fireplace, in the entry room or in living room.

* stabilized = a natural product which sap has been substituted for glycerin and water. This process keeps it unchanged in colour and look for many years. The plants are alive but they need no further maintenance. If the moss should become too dry, just vaporize on it some water with a spray bottle: it will be soon soft again.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns discusses about how these handmade ceramic buttons are impressed with a daisy stamp while still soft and are glazed in a glaze specially designed to highlight the pattern.

They are ideal for sewing, crochet, knitting and jazzing up hats, scarves and bags.

Evelyn and Lucy from artsyEVE states these tooth-fairy/learning pillows are so fun and there is a lovely dark floral print on each of the roofs.

Susan Fowler from SSFDesigns says each flower is 100% silk in different bright colors . Purple, lime green, red, blue and a plaid in all the colors . First I cut out a simple floral shape then twist the fabric t make it more 3d  and then sew that and then sew them onto the neckline . Taking about 45- 1 hour for each flower.

The dress and its bright colors where inspired by an artist friend who makes these beautiful floral paintings in bright bold colored and  I was inspired to make a dress with bright bold flowers !

Jolanta Pietrzak from AlabamaStudio discusses about how this is an original, minimalist necklace with natural dried lavender flowers enclosed in a glass bottle, framed in wire wrapped sterling silver.

The necklace is perfect for spring-summer trends – remember SERENITY – one of the colors of the year 2016? I especially recommend for garden lovers.

The pendant comes from the collection “A piece of the garden,” which I created to keep for a long time a part of my home garden in the form of seeds and flowers that I dried in natural conditions for over a month. The collection is a bit sentimental – in every of its element is a little piece of my garden – the space that surrounds me every day, inspires, but also allows me to take a breath.
