My competition entry

I decided that I absolutely wanted to use Chrysanthemum in my entry as I think it's such a versatile flower and it comes in a huge variety of colours AND of course because

Initially I created a bouquet with two chosen flowers: Chrysanthemums and Calla, however after reading the brief properly, I realised that I had to use 3 different flowers. I've attached my first attempt at the bottom of the page. My second attempt included Hydrangea, Chrysanthemum and Calla. (See the picture below)

To enter a competition like that is for me about getting my creativity on a roll. I would lie if I said I didn't want to win, however to my big surprise I came in among the top 11 out of about 90 entries and I am very proud of that. I don't know what my final position was as they only announced a winner and not second, third etc. 

It was amazing to see so many people from all over the world interpret the brief and see the variety, shapes, colours and imagination that had gone into this.

Never be afraid of putting yourself forward, because there are about as many different views on what beautiful flowers are as there are people.
