Complete illustrations are provided for every flower and leaf in the projects. Each project also includes color photos of several finished flowers, leaves and vines in bouquets or as a group of florals hanging as if from a tree or bush.

The illustrations depict gray scale for more than one color or shade of bead.. Some of the bouquets include a variety of beaded flowers which makes for a very appealing combination. There are several floral and leaf shapes, enough to keep you busy for a very long time.
