Oh the wonders of the amazing creative things you find on instagram.
How could I do anything but fall in love with these beautiful floral portraits by Justina Blakeney. Her hashtag #facethefoliage has started a mini revolution of blossoming features across my favourite social media site. Their aloof glances remind me of an art deco picture that my Auntie has had on her wall for as long as I can remember and the woman with the super stylish outfit and the cool-as-a-cumber stance always fascinated me. And now she has been brought to life in flowers! Justina’s botanic beauties were also given a glamorous glint this month as they appeared in vogue as a special collaboration garnished with beautiful sparkly jewellery. What, flowers and diamonds? Two of a girls favourite things? Yes! Her blog is also a wonder place for inspiration, pretty pictures and lovely reads… you should bookmark it.
There are several other amazing floral portrait accounts now popping up on instagram so check out the #facethefoliage hashtag for more inspiring herbaceous fizzogs from around the world, in all their seasonal glory!
And maybe have a go at your own. I’m going to so keep an eye out on instagram this weekend….
