Fun Flowers

I thought it would be fun to show you a couple of the other projects besides paper crafting that I've been working on.  I think I mentioned that I recently became the Floral Designer at the Michaels near my home.  I am really enjoying it.  I am also taking classes at the local Community College to become a Certified Florist. 

I've been chatting about about color usage on our paper projects.  It is amazing how so many of the same paper crafting principles apply to not only my floral design, but also, to home decorating, sewing and so many other artsy projects.
This is a cute little arrangement I did in the store a few days ago (glad that I took a picture as it is sold already.)  Anyway, look how I used yellow daffodils and orange crocus.  Yellow and Orange and next to each other on the color wheel  or analogous colors (remember our color wheel?)  Colors next to each other on the color wheel always work together.  By the way, that is a little kid's rain boot and a pinwheel.  :o)

This is last night's class arrangement....the pink carnation on the right slipped a tad in the vase on the way home...oh well.  See how my main flowers are pink and yellow?  Pink (a tinted form of red) and yellow are Primary colors.  We have chatted about how the primary colors always coordinate, too!

It is fascinating to me how so many of the things that we do in paper crafting are applicable in so many other things we do.  See, I have just given you an excuse to dig out your papers, inks and markers!  For Now, Happy Crafting!
