This is a quickie Floral Collage that I whipped up last week to donate to the Women's Club of Middletown for their Annual Fashion Show Luncheon. The collage was sold at the silent auction table.
I love doing these quickies. You start with the vase and add greens and then some colored papers and start building just like you would be arranging flowers in a real vase.
The brightest papers should go on last with some highlighted areas here and there to show the light hitting the arrangement.
The orange dots are actually pieces of printed tissue paper from the dollar store. And the white dots are from...well lets just say there was a fight with a three hole punch one day...and guess who lost.
I also added some sprinkles of poppy seed over a patch of medium to look like dried baby's breath in the arrangement.
This is a fun project to do with all the scraps leftover from larger projects. No...I never throw any paper away...every little piece gets saved into a baggie for these types of projects.
I matted this floral with leftover matting from another project and framed it in a lovely gold frame that I picked up at the Thrift Shop for one dollar. Not bad for a donation.
