Flowers and shells

by brae  

Seven days left until the deadline....  Yes, I am counting today and the last day.  Every day matters at this point.

Here are a couple more accessories I made.  The first are Bonnie Lavish Dahlias in orange.  I made red ones previously but this time used Bonnie's veiner for a much more realistic leaf texture.  The vases are from Manor House Minis and were originally pale green.

The second is a shadow box made from strip wood and painted Mushroom by Folk Art.  I sanded the edges to make it more rustic.  The shells are approximately 1/4" and the largest starfish is about 1/2" in size.  :]  All came from Timber Ridge Studio.

You make such beautiful flowers and the veiner does make a difference. I like your version of the vase. Your shadow box is so cute. It’s mind boggling when one realizes the size of these miniature objects. Yesterday, I put together a dough-kneading board, a candle box and a knife box. I can appreciate the time it took you to build that little shadow box. Of course, I do not have your experience. I’m fairly new at this. I think the main thing is to just have fun with it.

Love what you’re making.

I’m counting the days too…time to get off my computer and back to gluing together geraniums.
