Jaclyn Gough Half Nude in Bloom

In the nude wearing flowers in the simplest form that I could create thus far and artistically captured on film by Michael D. Colanero of UNCOMMON Gallery exemplify’s my passion and professionalism in the field of floral design.

Below are 3 images received that I’d like to share with you today , as I’m proud of my work. The body piece was an armature created from Midilino Sticks. After creating a base fit for my torso, I de petaled a red Gerbera Daisy and created a half moon shape glueing individual petals. This was attached with two Midilino Sticks and secured with wire around my neck.

The head piece was created forming an armature just as the body piece was then secured on the front of my head with a bobby pin. I glued a couple Hypericum Berries onto the armature to give contrast  and a bit of interest. There was tons of room for play during the shoot such as putting a flower in my mouth, covering one eye with a Gerbera Daisy and actually removing the body piece and covering my other eye  where the head piece was not placed.

Overall this shoot was wonderful and very simplistic for me since normally my pieces tend to be “over the top” with massive amounts of flowers. I hope you become inspired by this Nude in Bloom shoot.

Blogging about Blooms in Vegas !

Good Morning from Las Vegas ! For my first time ever I was fortunate enough to tag along with boyfriend, Nick Tumminello for a little fitness fun and a V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N Once we arrived to my surprise I found this 24 Hour Flower Cooler 😉


Last year I blogged about Blooms inside the Bellagio which feature flower photos Nick took for me since I was unable to come with him. This year I’m so excited I am able to see everything I can possibly see in Vegas and the flowers are icing on the cake for me. HELLO FLORGASM! Our first day was eventful and at night after dinner we headed to the Bellagio for Nicks favorite Cab Car Drink and a walk through the garden.

Got Gyp ?

Check out this awesome head to toe floral piece I created the other day.

The skirt is made of 3 different colors of Tulle tightly secured onto Burlap. Rose Petals individually glued on to give the skirt more fullness. The top was created using Tulle as the Foundation then  2 groupings of Gypsophilia a.k.a Babies Breath criss crossed each other and secured with a pearl accent. After to hide mechanics, I made 2 little garlands that were fastened around my neck.

My hair had 3 upside down braids which brought the remaining hair to the top of my head that I formed into a loose bun.

Instead of creating a headpiece my “normal” way, I secured with Bobby Pins for this since it was really small.

To top things off I added a touch of bling with Fitz Products on top of my eye brows.
