Beautiful Rose Bridal Bouquet!

This bouquet was shipped to me from Indiana to be preserved and I recieved it on my doorstep the day after I moved from Ohio to Texas! So, you can imagine digging through boxes for all my pressing supplies and working with these beautiful orange roses on a makeshift picnic table in the living room, surrounded by mountains of more boxes! Lissel was very patient with me for the several weeks of unpacking and setting up my studio before I could put her art together! Thanks again, Lissel! :)

White Calla Lillies ~

My friend, Lissel from California, wanted the bouquet she carried in her wedding a few years ago recreated. She carried large Calla Lillies which would have not fit into an 8x10 frame, so we opted for Mini Calla Lillies. Teal Blue and white were the colors of her wedding,
so I accented the sweet simple bouquet with a teal ribbon.
The pressed, preserved Calla's are on a seafoam blue background with a black frame.

I prefer that Memorial Art look as alive and fresh as possible. 
She chose a pink background and an oval cherry frame.

I took the bride and groom's engagement photo and had it laser engraved onto the back of the glass, then added a few more flowers to make the roses "pop". This was a wedding gift for a dear friend...Congratulations Sondra and Richard of Ohio! :)

Memorial Flowers ~ Roses ~*

Life can get hectic, especially when walking thru the death of a loved one. I received these roses a week after the memorial service. Typically, they would be too far gone to preserve. Well, say what you will about prayer....I prayed...and below are the results!

The above piece was made for the daughter...the one below for the grandson.
