Keeping a Wedding Moment Alive and more...

What a busy months a had!!! I've been away too long but I'm back! Let me tell you what I've been doing...

I had a client who contacted me to create a replica of her bouquet. She had a destination wedding last year and wanted to keep her bouquet but because her flowers couldn't last enough to be preserved she had to thrown it away. (a heartbreaking moment!!)

So she asked me if I could recreate some of the flowers to be part of a shadowbox. After sending me some pictures of her beautiful bouquet I started making a replica of it, which consists of two tone red roses, orange roses, yellow calla lilies and some fillers as hypericum berries. The two tone roses were created using a new techniques to achieve this amazingly real look!

Here are some pictures of the two tone roses and of the arrangement:

Besides some orders I had the opportunity to teach at one-week Art Camp. It was intense and amazing! I taught kids some cool projects at two workshops, one for Cold Porcelain and the other for Clay Workshop. Here are some pictures of their work:
I had a lot of fun looking at kids creating some amazing things!
Now, I am back to work again, making an orchid plant and some succulents. More pictures to come.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
