Dried Flowerwork: Decorative Ideas for Everlasting Arrangements
" Dried flowers are the ideal way to brighten up any room in the home. The extensive range of dried materials available today makes it possible to enjoy the beauty of your favorite blooms throughout the year, as well as enabling you to experiment with new textures and colors by combining flowers with interesting foliage, dried moss or even fruit. Dried Flowerwork presents over 20 original arrangements and shows, room by room, how to create everlasting objects from natural materials. You might choose a cast-iron urn filled with pretty pink peonies to place on a dressing table, or create a glorious harvest wreath from foliage and vegetables to hang in the kitchen. Each project is self-contained and illustrates every stage of preparation with step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow instructions. For those who would like to experiment with their own ideas, a separate reference section provides instant access to the techniques of working with dried flowers and illustrates the extensive variety of materials on offer." -- Amazon.com.
