TCREATIV DESIGNS

Tola Makinde - Creative Designer

I have recently added Floral Preservation to my work.  I grew up on a farm and planting and greenery has always been a place I’m at peace.  Flowers has always been evident in a lot of things I do.  My daughter got married in 2021 and I decided to help her with preserving her bouquet and floral ensemble.  While doing this I found myself engulfed in it and decided why not.  I love working with people and seeing their amazement when they see what is created brings me a sense of satisfaction that I have made that person’s day. Follow me on this journey.  It will be fun.

Drying a flower involves can be done by putting flower in Silica Gel or hanging the flower upside down to remove light and moisture.  It’s pretty much preserving the flower a in a moment in time.  .Drying flower can take some time depending on what types of flower it is.

Air Dry Flower

Air Drying flowers involves hanging the flowers upside down allowing them to dry on their own.  Drying flowers this way can take a long time than the other types of drying.
