Preparing for the overhaul...

Thursday, September 12, 2013


This is my first mini plant effort:

After having, not the greatest success with other people's leaf sheets, techniques, etc, I decided to experiment a little and make my own.  I've produced a couple of plants since this, and I think the learning curve is fairly steep, but it's still definitely very much a work in progress and a learning experience.  I'll talk more about my techniques if anyone's interested...if I still have any readers!

I hope everyone reading this is doing well.

You have readers, I'm interested and... wow! absolutely realistic and natural result. Fantastic!

Margaret said...

It looks so realistic you must have coloured the leaves and done some embossing?

Isabelle said...

Your plants are wonderful! I would love to read more about your techniques.
Not to fear, you are extremely talented and you have many readers! We are willing to wait patiently as we all experience real life interruptions.

I too have been a bit lax in my blog posting! Real life keeps getting in the way! I would love to learn how you created this plant, it's beautiful!
