The Arizona Commission

This particular custom order was researched entirely using this amazing image database of Southeastern Arizona Wildflowers and Plants by color.  The client gifted the order to someone living in Arizona and requested something that represented the southwest. I was given the freedom to design whatever I wanted.  The wreath of miniature paper flowers represents the following flowers: 

Bouvardia ternifolia/Firecracker bush


Erysimum capitatum/Sanddune Wallflower


Sanvitalia abertii/Abert's creeping zinnia


Cylindropuntia acanthocarpa/Buckhorn cholla


Sisyrinchium demissum/Stiff Blue-eyed Grass


Almutaster pauciflorus/Alkali marsh aster


Gomphrena sonorae/Sonoran globe amaranth

 

I used 32 gram and doublette for this order from Fiddlehead Artisan Supply and Castle in the Air.
