Well over a year ago I read The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh and have been planning a series of illustrations inspired by it ever since. A few months ago I finally got around to starting the drawings and I've slowly been making progress between other projects. This week I finally finished them!
The series consists of 9 illustrations based on the meanings of various flowers (taken from Victoria's Dictionary of Flowers at the back of the book). Here they all are:
Queen Anne's Lace - Fantasy
Acacia, Dogwood, Fuchsia, Linden Tree, Myrtle, Pinks, Red Rose - Love
Red Rose, Saxifraga - Love & Affection
Angelica, Lupine - Imagination & Inspiration
Stephanotis - Happiness in Marriage
(Featuring our engagement rings. I'm thinking of using this one somehow in the wedding decor)
Primrose - Childhood
Freesia - Everlasting Friendship
Pear Blossom - Comfort
Agapanthus - Love Letter
I may add a few of these as prints to my Etsy shop soon, or possibly turn them into a little zine.
What do you think?
