the perfect mess

posted on: 05,Mar 2015

exactly how i want to start my first blogpost. the perfect mess.

i adore blooms when they are alive, but somehow guilty that their life is so short-lived. whenever i have leftovers i hang them upside down on my window grills. few days later, they are immortalised. some blooms seen here were bought dried, cotton flower, haver and lavender.

here are some of the mess i made, what a beautiful mess.

african black grass (above) and cotton flower (below) make great combination for a rustic wedding.

protea robyn dried up nicely

cant get enough of these tokyo roses, when they were alive they were in coral grandoise in colour. now they dried to an almost neon pink lining the tips of petals.

other than drying flowers up, pressed flowers are great alternatives of preservation. again while our blazing sun might be good for drying blooms, the humidity almost make it difficult to preserve their colours.

thats all for now flower folks.
