Fun, Whimsical ~

Two whimsical pieces I did for my church to auction off for a fundraiser!

Texas Bluebonnets, Larkspur, Daisies, 
and a few other Wildflowers mixed in! 
Look closely, you'll see some hummingbirds!
(also made from pressed flowers!

Teresa's Lush White Bridal and Bridesmaid's Bouquets ~

Beautiful All White Bouquet of Calla Lillies, Orchids, Peonies and Roses!

Floral Design by: Beth of Enchanted Florist, Austin, TX

Teresa chose to have her flowers pressed, preserved
and presented on a black background 
and framed in an 11x14 Silver/Black Frame

She also brought me two bridesmaids bouquets
of white Roses and Orchids to be
preserved as gifts!  These are 8x10.

14 Beveled Glass Ornaments in 
Heart, Teardrop and Balloon Shapes
were made from extra flowers

Thank you, Teresa, for trusting me with your gorgeous bouquet!

Ahhhh....the Scent of Peonies! ~*

I love peonies! 
 They take me back to where I fell in love with flowers, 
my grandma's yard in Indiana ~* 

 I recently preserved Ann's all-peony bridal bouquet 
and the scent filled my studio with memories!

Floral Designer: Wild Bunches of Dripping Springs, TX
Photographer:  OneCinema Productions

Ann chose to have her Peony Bridal Bouquet
mounted on a very light gray background
and framed in an 11x14 walnut frame.

A glittery rhinestone-studded monogram 
"H" representing her new last name was added.

These Heart-Shaped Beveled Glass Ornaments
were made from left over petals.

"Annie!! I love love LOVE the art you created!! 
Thank you SO much!! My husband thought it was very cool!" ~ Ann

Thank you, Ann!  It was a pleasure working with you!

An Oval of Roses ~*

 This beautiful all white bouquet came to me from Maryland.
It was a beautiful ball of White Roses and Dusty Miller! 

The flowers are pressed and mounted on a periwinkle background, 
then vacuum sealed and framed in an 11x14 silver, oval frame.  
Only conservation clear, museum quality glass is used. 

It arrived late Monday evening. I was so excited to see it.
It is beautiful. Most importantly my daughter loves it.
Thank you again. Pat, Mother of the Bride
