Monday making...

Our little shop is closed on a Monday which gives us the chance to catch up on orders and work on new projects and designs.   Today we were busy creating a new artwork in our vintage bouquet series.  These artworks are seriously time consuming and make an incredible amount of mess!   

We free cut all our petals and leaves from old illustrations from disgarded books as we find this creates a completely unique design that is impossible to recreate exactly.   We use mood boards and select colours as a starting point and then look through botanical books for some flower inspiration.  Other than that, we don't really plan the designs, we just start snipping!! We are so used to working together like this that we often work in silence, absorbed with our cutting, or chat about things completely unrelated to the design.

Happy yellow flowers today.  One of our favorite colors to create with.
