NGC Master Judge and floral designer Tony Todesco with one of his creations at the 2007 FGCCT Annual Luncheon. Traditional Mass Design
Handbook, p. 182 - "Linear set-pattern is strongly apparent, as for Line Design; however, additional material enhances and strengthens the line.

Tapestry: A Three-Dimensional Collage
Handbook, p. 210 - "A Creative solid-mass design with a geometric closed silhouette/s. . . . Emphasis is on plant material by volume with other components optional. As an artist creates a painting or work of art, the designer defines the silhouette's within the allotted space. This becomes the canvas and the added components become the medium. . . . . Imaginative design technique/s and applications must be used, e.g., pillowing, pave, color blocking, bunching, weaving, etc. Inner space is achieved by overlapping of planes and/or components by groupings of like colors, textures, forms, and/or by placing next to other contrasting groupings or other components."
