Week Twenty-Two: Floral Color Block 8

The Bouquet-a-Week Project: Week Twenty-Two

One of my personal favorite categories on the Braiden Blossoms website is one I call Floral Color Blocks, for lack of a more imaginative term. Floral Color Blocks are masses of flowers in rectangular shapes  “painted” in the Waterlogue app. To me, they could almost be printed on paper and/or fabric and made into notecards and/or pillowcases. Hey, a girl can dream!

Sometimes I sit and stare at a Floral Color Block, allowing myself to fall into the colors and textures as though they were a soothing visual pillow.

So this week, Week Twenty-Two of the Bouquet-a-Week Project, instead of following my usual formula of purchasing a bouquet at the Pike Place Market and rearranging it using new combinations of flowers, vases, and decorative fillers, I present some of my favorite Floral Color Blocks.

I hope you enjoy these “visual pillows” as much as I do!

The Bouquet-a-Week Project: Week Sixteen

This week, instead of posting Pike Place Market flowers “painted” using the Waterlogue app, we are taking a bit of a diversion to display what I refer to as “Color Blocks.” Color Blocks are portions of formal flower arrangements that I photograph, then “paint” in Waterlogue.

I find these formal flower arrangements at my health club, where I work out twice a week. But you can find similar formal flower arrangements in office and hotel lobbies, flower shops, and perhaps even in your own home (if you’re lucky!).

If the half-dozen images that follow resonate with you, you can find more in the Color Blocks section of this website.
