textural harmony

Burlap-covered leaves carry the motif of a cloth-covered planter into the floral design.

Inspired by its container—a classic yet contemporary square tote—this composition is upgraded with a tailored touch to the foliage. Burlap is adhered to some of the salal leaves, with a few leaves left bare to reinforce the natural aesthetic of the design. Plumelike stems of Solidaster visually reinforce the vertical line created by the roses, which are arranged in stairstep fashion. ■

MATERIALS: roses, goldenrod (Solidaster) and salal leaves from favorite suppliers; Fall Pot Cover from burton + BURTON; burlap from crafts store; Tack 2000 spray adhesive from Design Master Color Tool.

Spray adhesive onto the front sides of salal leaves, and press burlap onto the adhesive-coated leaf surfaces. Cut around the leaf edges from the backsides of the leaves to trim the excess burlap.
