Grey Flower Appliques

These measure roughly an inch and a half or about 4cm across. Ready to be added to any number of DIY projects.

Flower Girl Basket

I made this little organza pouch as an alternative to a flower girl basket.

It's light and versatile and the easiest thing to be packed  into a suitcase for, say, a destination wedding....

I've added two loops -on either side of the handle- so that any kind of embellishment can be added. I was thinking a ribbon with flowers would be a nice touch.Tied with a pretty bow and enough left to trail down.

Large Ethereal Flower Wand

I made this flower wand the other day. It's got a big peony-like flower, tulle leaves and trailing organza ribbons so ethereal that they seem to float down rather than cascade down.

I can see it being carried down the aisle by smiling flower girls or being propped in a pretty glass bottle, jar or vase as table decor just about anywhere.

I like the result so much that I've started experimenting with other colours, shapes, sizes and styles for the flowers, the ribbon and even the wooden dowel itself.

Black Flower Crown

While the black flowers on this flower crown seem to have a blue tinge, they're actually ink black with a hint of gold and bronze thrown in - and they are made from these black organza flowers

Large Raven Black Flowers

 These are large black organza flowers I made for a special project.
There's eight of them - in the two different sizes shown in these pictures.

They're actually darker than the pictures show. They're jet black with no hint of blue at all. Both the organza used for the petals and the tulle are as black as night. 
The only relief from the darkness of the flower comes in the form of the gold stamens in the centre and and a hint of dark bronze organza in the mix to highlight the black and give the flower some depth and interest. Can you see it?
