I think that’s a great start! My only piece of advice would be possibly adding more colorful brooches. I think it could make it seem more dynamic, and I find that the bright and colorful brooches are the ones that remind me of real flowers and are the most interesting.

I think it looks great, but the big brooch is creating a flat space, in an otherwise round shape. If it were me, and I was going for a rounded look, I would move the big brooch somewhere else in the bouquet or maybe take it out all together. If this is the look you are going for then leave it alone. It is lovely.

Some angles look really good, others look funky.. I think you need to just keep working on the placement of all the brooches

 i made one too! (can’t find my camera with the pic, but ill upload later if i find it) – i would play w the placement a little – it looks like you have most of the larger brooches centered, and the smaller ones around the edges.  i would mix that up a little bit to give it some balance

i think you did a good job with it, but it looks a little small. Do you have more you can add or other fillers to give it more prominence? You’re on the right track!

I agree with @noritake22: about the big brooch making it look flat. I think its a great start but I would also move some of them around to make it look round

It’s a great start – I would get rid of the big pink pieces.  They kinda clash.

I don’t think it will overpower you at all, since the one showing you holding it is where it looks small (to me, anyway).

If I were doing it, I’d probably practice gathering it a few different ways. Maybe gather all the black for the center and stagger the reds around the base? Maybe get all the reds in the center and disperse the black along the sides? There’s a million ways you can design it, so pick one that’s most pleasing to YOUR eye…and then take pictures holding it along the way.
