Pink Floral Fantasy

Pink floral

When I get the chance, I try to create a floral fabric design – something a designer might paint – from living flowers. Not that I deserve the credit for growing the flowers, cutting them or arranging them, mind you. By ‘create’ I ought to say spot the opportunity and take a picture.

This one is a pretty decent attempt. The odd flower has its mind on other things or is sulking and refusing to pose nicely.  The top left area needs less depth and more flatness. I’m relying on a neighbouring vase to fill that space.  But though, as ever, I am critical, most of the flowers are cheerful, beaming, radiant and happy as anyone (even Becky) could desire.

For those interested in the flowers, they are prize blooms from the garden rather than the florist’s shop: Achillea, Dahlia, Japanese anemone, Phlox and Zinnia.

Shared for two very friendly blogging challenges: April Squares is aiming to brighten our month and Life in Colour, to pinken it.

  1. I like your criticisms 🙂 I was looking at some tulips I bought yesterday and trying to decide if they would get away with being pink, or if they’re actually red. Woe is me 🙂 🙂

    1. Woe is you. If you’d have decided they were pink, everyone else would have said terracotta. 🙂
      There are white ones and red ones here, but the effect they give is still very pink. I wonder if our eyes are blending them.

  2. Pinkening! Yes, the world needs it. This is really a very jolly group, and I can see a wonderful party dress made with this fabric. Oh, and a hat to match, please!
