THE LOVE OF FLOWERS FLOWER SHOP - VIDEO TUTORIAL - NEW IMAGE SETS - STREETS OF PARIS EVENT

Located between the Black Cat Café and the Chocolatier you’ll find a new flower shop named L’ Amour des Fleurs (The Love of Flowers).
Outside of the shop are tubs of beautiful flowers and potted plants.  Some of the items are displayed in carts.  
Under the windows are lovely boxes filled with flowers and purple creeping phlox vines climb the walls on each side.
Step inside and you’ll find even more flowers, plants, and elegant flower arrangements.
On the walls are Art Nouveau style panels (from the New Art Nouveau Ladies of Nature Collage Sheet.)  Glass shelves hold flower pots.  The bags and boxes are from the New Flower Shop Bags & Boxes Collage Sheet.
Below the shelves is a work table perfect for putting together flower arrangements.
On the other side of the shop are more shelves, flowers and a table with a cash register.
In the corners and flanking the front door are more flowers and flower arrangements displayed on stands made from wood blocks.
The realistic looking potted plants are made using the New Leaves Collage Sheet or if you prefer to work with individual images there is a companion digital image set.
 At night the lights (tea lights) under the awning illuminate the lovely flowers.  Further down in the post you'll find the images I used to create the awning and the stained glass image used on the door.

NEW COLLAGE SHEETS & DIGITAL IMAGE SET
For this shop, I’ve created three new collage sheets and a digital image set, details below.

This sheet contains 8 nature-themed panels featuring Art Nouveau ladies.  Also included are 7 Art Nouveau style borders.  These images would work well printed on paper or as faux stained glass printed on transparency film. 

This collage sheet contains a variety of flower shop themed bag and box designs and sizes plus a coordinating poster.

This collage sheet contains 4 copies of 45 unique leaves.  TIP: If in your project both sides of the leaf will be visible, print a mottled green background image on one side of the paper (I have images for you to use further down in the post) and the leaves on the other side.     

This set contains 45 unique images leaf images that are 1:12 scale.  They are the same images that are found on the Leaves Collage Sheet.  As the images are high resolution 300 dpi images, they can be easily resized for other sized projects.  By adding a wire behind the leaves you can create 3D potted plants.   

VIDEO TUTORIAL
NOTE: Since I have covered building the main structure another video, in this tutorial I’m going to focus on putting the Flower Shop together and the materials I used.

Laura,

These are just beautiful and the plants look so realistic. The only problem I have is downloading the green backgrounds. When I save the image, it only saves as a 5x7 image, not an 8-1/2 x 11 image. Could you please help?

Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing your next creation.
