Created for the Love Is Collaboration, I wanted to represent passion through flowers. I chose the exotic, tropical blooms of the Bird of Paradise, Bougainvillea and Hibiscus with filler greenery because, for me, they evoke warm summer nights and the sound of ocean waves upon the shore and long evenings with the one you love. Everything is made from gum paste.

Thank you, whatthedogate!  I have limited experience making flowers, although it is one of my favorite things to do, and I wanted to get some practice. Lots of room for improvement, but I learned a lot and it was fun.
