this is my first rose spray. It is small, on a 6 in cake. I learned I was doing the leaves wrong, so I'll do better next time with those. But does this spray need more leaves? More filler flowers? Do the wires need to be bent to make the flowers closer together?

Please advise.

It's really lovely...I was just admiring it in the gallery section, actually.

First off let me say I think your flowers look gorgeous! I think the spray itself looks awesome to but if you still thinking something is missing I would say bend all the pieces closer together so there isn't as much empty space in the middle and perhaps add some more leaves as well. I like it the way it is but I also like them to have the look of a bouquet of flowers as well.

Here are a couple of pics I just found that might help explain what I am saying better than my words can. icon_lol.gif



HTH! Once again you did a great job on your 1st spray!! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

I was going for the look of that second pic you posted. It has more buds closer together, so I'll go for that next time.

Does anyone know how to make those 'lily' looking flowers in that second pic? I like those alot.
