Real-Life Floral Patterns

I love, love, love floral patterns. Much of the time, I can be found doodling and painting them, but ever since I discovered people making art with real flowers (see links at the end of the post), I've been inspired to try it myself. And let me tell you, I LOVED IT. I picked up a colorful bouquet from my local grocery store and used the different flowers and parts of the flowers to create both all-over and round patterns. I can see potential here for incorporating photo prints of my favorite pieces into my home decor. See the results below...

I really enjoyed making these, and I plan to find time to do it again soon. I hope you are all enjoying the wonderful spring weather and take time to admire the colorful blooms of the season.

Make something beautiful today!
