麗乾花進階師資課程 (L’écrin Flower Advance Training Course)

麗乾花進階師資課程已上了一半,今次去台灣上課製作了兩個作品,而這兩個作品的相框都是新的相框。在整個上課過程中,日本老師杉野宣雄先生都教了我們一些技巧及在封框的過程中要注意的地方,而這些技巧都是製作捧花(花球)額框必要的技巧。下一次到台灣上課就會學習怎樣做一個捧花(花球)額框了, 很期待喔。。。

押花(2) (Pressed Flower 2)

原來做押花的相框作品不是那麼容易,尤其在平面上如何凝造所需要的畫面或氣氛是很難的,真的需要練習多一點喔。。。
It is discovered that to do the design of Pressed Flower is very difficult, specially it is hard to create required screen or atmosphere. It is really need to do more practise on it~~

體驗班 - 22 Oct 2011 (Experience Class - 22 Oct)

第一堂的體驗班於10月22日完成了~~當我準備體驗班的時候,我擔心學生在一個短短的時間裡未能完成整個作品(因為她們都是第一次接觸麗乾花),所以決定準備一樣的乾花給每一個學生,而且乾花的數量亦不能太多。但沒有想到同一樣的乾花,每一個學生都做了不同的設計,真的很棒,亦很美~~很期待再有機會分享麗乾花的樂趣/技術給其他香港朋友~~
The first class of experience class has been finished on 22 Oct. When I do the preparation for the class, I was afraid students can't finish their works on time, therefore I decide to prepare same dry flowers for each student and provide adequate dry flowers for each student. I haven't thought that each student can make different design with the same dry flowers, that's really so great and their designs are so beautiful. I look forward to have more chance to share the pleasure / technique of L’écrin Flower to others.

押花 (Pressed Flower)

當我第一次到台灣不可思議俱樂部時(我上麗花課程的地方), 看到很多押花的作品掛於牆上及放在櫃子上。我看到的時候,以為是一幅畫,看清楚才知道是押花,真的覺得很美,所以當時已對押花產生興趣。所以今次去台灣上麗乾花進階師資課程之外,還開始學一些押花的基本技巧。以下是我做的明信片,明信片上的花是我的老師事前準備好的押花(非常美喔。。。),明信片上的字是利用印章印上去的。
When I first arrived in HobbyDIY in Taiwan, I saw Pressed Flower's pieces hanging on the wall and also placed on the cabinet. When I glanced around the pieces, I thought they are painting. When I looked carefully,  I realized they are not painting, they are Pressed Flower's pieces. They are so beautiful and start to have an interest in learning pressed flower at that moment. 
This time I went to Taiwan to attend L’écrin Flower Advance Teacher Training Course, I also learn some basic technique of Pressed Flower. The following postcard is made by myself, the pressed flower is prepared by my teacher (so beautiful~~~) and the wording shown on the postcard is done by using stamp.

籌備中~~(Preparation~~)

我將快於Zacca DreamLacey Blue Workshop開麗乾花體驗班,所以我與Zacca Dream的店長一起製作體驗班的作品,然後拍照,成為體驗班簡介的相片。Zacca Dream的店長曾經在台灣/日本看過麗乾花的作品,不過今次是她第一次學習怎樣製作麗乾花作品。我們都好享受整個製作過程,亦發現到對初學麗乾花的朋友會有一定難度而需要修改一下體驗班的內容,希望大家會喜歡我們的作品,並參加麗乾花體驗班~~~
L’écrin Flower Experience Class will be held in Lacey Blue Workshop of Zacca Dream. Therefore, the owner of Zacca Dream and me made the experience class's pieces and took the photo of the pieces for the course's photo.  The owner of Zacca Dream has seen the L’écrin Flower's pieces in Japan / Taiwan, but this is her first time to learn how to make L’écrin Flower's pieces. We were so enjoy in the making process. During the making process, I discovered there will be some difficulties for the beginner and it is required to change the content of the course. Hope that all of you like our pieces and take our course~~

Farewell dinner

我的媽媽很快就退休,所以會安排一個Farewell dinner幫她慶祝一下, 而我今次特意做了一個作品來歡迎她的來賓。因為我的媽媽很喜歡黃色玫瑰,所以今次的設計用上了黃色玫瑰,並配襯粉紅色的玫瑰及小花為整個設計增添更多色彩。另外更運用了一些閃石及金色的紗絲帶作裝飾來形造一種高貴的感覺(不知道大家看到我作品的相片,有沒有感受到高貴的感覺?)
My mom will retire and a Farewell dinner is organized to celebrate her retirement. Therefore, I make a pieces for welcoming her guests. As yellow rose is my mom favorite flower, I use it in my design with a few pink roses and tiny flowers in order make my pieces more colourful. Besides, golden colour ribbon and shiny stones are also used to create a noble feeling.

為日本花農打打氣~~ (Support Japanese farmers~~)

因為日本福島核電廠泄漏輻射事故,一些國家擔心當地農產品受輻射污染而暫時停止輸入日本食物,所以令農產品銷量大跌,而日本鮮花也不例外,受到很大的影響。昨天到了花墟逛一逛,看到有一間花店為支持日本鮮花植物進行義賣行動,把她購入的所有日本鮮花及植物會以特惠義賣價出售.而她所有收益會全數回饋於日本的花農。我看到這個義賣行動,就在她的花店買了一些日本花朵,支持一下日本花農,為你們打打氣~~
Because of nuclear power accident at Fukushima, some countries worried about agricultural products being contaminated by radiation, so sales of agricultural products drop a lot and the sales of Japanese fresh flower are also affected. Yesterday, I went to the flower market where there is a flower shop carried out charity sale of Japanese fresh flowers to support their agricultural products. She purchased the Japanese fresh flowers and sold in a discount price. The money earned by selling these flowers will be donated to Japanese agricultural farmers. when I saw this charity sale, I went inside and bought some Japanese flowers in order to support this event.

相同品種的花,但不同的顏色 (Same species of flower with different colours)

在《新的乾燥花》的文章中,我買了藍色的花朵做了乾燥。近日給我遇見同品種但顏色不同的花,所以我就買下來做乾燥,比較一下它跟藍色花朵經過乾燥後的品質,並比對一下它與藍色花朵的大小和形態。
In my previous article - "New Dry Flowers", I have made the blue flowers into dry flowers. Recently, I saw the same species of the flower with different colours, so I bought them at once as I am so curious whether the quality of this dry flower is the same as the blue one. I will also compare the size of these two colours of flowers and their shape.  

注:因為相機的問題,所以相片看到花朵的顏色有可能跟原本花朵的顏色有偏差。
Remark: The photo shows the colour of the flower may have a little differece from the true colour of the fresh flower.

鮮花的顏色是紫色的 (The colour
of the fresh flower is purple)
把紫色和藍色的乾燥花放在一齊
小的比較,放在藍色花朵右手邊的
紫色花朵已經算是眾多紫色花朵裡
較大的其中一朵
(The dry flowers of both blue and 
purple flower are putting together in 
order to compare their size. The size 
of purple flower, located at the right hand 
side of the blue one, is one of the largest
 flower among those purple flower)
乾燥後,紫色花朵的顏色(同藍色花朵一樣)跟它鮮花時的顏色差不多,效果都一樣好。相比藍色的花朵,紫色花朵比較細小。但它有不同的大小,可以運用於不同情況,細小的花朵可以做襯花,大的亦可以做主花,真的很好。至於花的形態上,兩者都有不同,藍色的花朵成杯形,紫色的花形是平開,我自己就比較喜歡藍色花朵的形態啦。
After undergoing the drying process, the colour of this purple flower did't change too much and it has the same quality as the blue one. Compare with the blue flower, the size of the purple one is smaller. It also has different sizes, thus can be used in different situation. Smaller flowers ca be used as decoration flowers while bigger flowers can be used as theme flowers. For the shape of the flower, they have a little bit difference between two. The shape of the blue one is a cup shape while the petal of the other one is flat open. Compare with the shape of these two differenct colour of flowers, I like the blue one more.
