Floral Border

In October 2020, I started an online course called ‘Watercolour Florals for Graphic Design’ by Teela Cunningham. I wanted to improve my watercolour painting skills and learn more about assembling floral arrangements. As part of this course, I learned how to create a floral border in Photoshop. See the example at the end of this blog post.

To create the floral border, I had to paint various watercolour florals and foliage by hand. Then, I scanned all the paintings at 600 dpi. I imported the paintings into Photoshop so that I could enhance the colour and remove the white backgrounds. Finally, using freehand references, I arranged some of the florals and foliage into a corner bouquet with Photoshop.

I really enjoyed creating the corner bouquet and love the final result. It was also a great opportunity to merge my traditional and digital design skills to create something girly and inspired by nature. To purchase this design on various products, check it out on Redbubble.
