The Flowering Wall

Jackie Mayo's avatar Jackie Mayo

Nine years ago I was diagnosed with cancer, life is put into perspective; one of those things was not being there for my daughter's wedding. I wanted to create something that celebrated the life and opportunity that I had; remembering that everyday is a gift from God. Each petal was hand crafted with the various types of paper, hot glue and much love. Every flower was arranged on the wall in a way that transitions well and creates fluidity through the piece. I find beauty in each flower!!! The wall was used at English Hills on November 4th for Liz and Brad's wedding reception. I am blessed with beautiful memories-I am a survivor.
