Title: WHAT CAN I DO WITH SILK GREENERY? Author: Wendy Dees Copyright: 2001 Publisher: Hot off the Press Pages: 40 Projects: 36 Condition: Brand New, Out of Print
A collection of ideas for using and enjoying silk florals in the home. From baskets and vases to wreaths and garlands, this book has something for nearly every part of the home. Each project is accompanied by a full-color photo of the finished project, as well as a few photos of various steps along the way to completion. The numbered directions are detailed and very well-written, so that even the novice floral arranger can create something very special. All projects also have a detailed list of necessary supplies. The represented styles and aesthetics are nicely varied. There are floral designs that appear "wilder" or more spontaneous, as well as ultra-formal designs that would fit into anyone's dinner parties. There are country styles, tropical designs, and even a few things that would look nice for weddings and tea parties, with their sweet romanticism.
If you're tired of floral books where everything looks alike, then this book is a nice remedy. The end of the book provides a short primer on identifying common greenery, a few tips on using floral wire and floral picks, and a bit on tying a puffy style bow. All in all, if you're looking to decorate your home and introduce the feeling of natural elements without having to replace fresh flowers every few days, then this book is for you. The cost savings are enormous over fresh flowers, and today's silk flowers are amazingly realistic. This is definitely worth adding to any crafter's home library. Includes step-by-step instructions and full color photos. No experience is needed to create designer results.
