Here are my entries for the 2011 Philadelphia Flower Show" Springtime in Paris":
Class 142 "Bon Appetit"
Made from bark, leaves and flowers, this class called for a picture depicting a cafe.
Class 143 "VIN"
Requirement: A Scene incorporating wine or a vineyard.
Made with bark, leaves, roses, hydrangea, tendrils and more all natural plant materials.
Class 145 "La Boheme"
This was a three dimensional class, calling for an opera purse.
Class 181 " Heure D' Aller! " (Time to Go)
The objective was to create a wearable timepiece inspired by a french jeweler.
Truthfully I was inspired by my materials, more than anything else! Materials used: cloves, sago palm, birch bark, lotus stem and dogwood petals.
This class, unlike Pressed Plants, allows for painting of plant materials. Because this is new to me, I was a bit crazy trying to make it all come together.
