I have had several people ask me what my process is to making my floral designs, today I thought I would give you some of my step.
My thinking process is almost as fun as my creating process, So here we go!
I remember sitting in art class in elementary school learning about the color wheel. I never thought I would ever use it, BUT I use it just about every time I design. The color wheel helps me to visualize the colors that look best together. There are a few styles to go by.
After I have the style and colors I want, I choose florals that fit with my vision. I try to choose florals with different textures, shapes and height.
Then, with all that in mind, I create a design on my laptop to give me an even closer idea for my vision (this step is only for weddings or style shoots). It's rough, but it gives me a better idea and helps me visualize. I am a very visual person/learner!
I love using more than one kind of greenery as well, it adds more texture.
Then if I do everything right, my vision becomes a reality!
This is just a peak into my process and hopefully it shows how much care and thought I put into each arrangement, no matter how small!
