99 Flowers Project

We do like a project here at Modern Mint, and 99 Flowers is our new one.

The 99 Flowers Project is being run by Stefano of Modern Mint, and over the next 99 days Stefano will be creating 99 portraits of flowers, bringing a touch of the art and illustration world to the ephemeral beauty of flowers. Will you be able to identify each flower?

Each new flower will be uploaded on to our Pinterest Page daily and Stefano’s illustrations can also be followed on Facebook and Twitter. We hope you enjoy seeing a new flower each day! The first few are already up to view …
