Thanks for checking out my blog. I'm fairly new to this, so bear with me as I work out the kinks.
I started making miniature flowers about a year ago for a house I built. Recently, I have started making flowers to sell. You can find them on eBay. I start graduate school in a little over a year so I'm saving up every penny I make!
I've started this blog a little bit for myself, sort of like a journal about my miniature making, but also because I thought maybe others would be interested in my process and seeing my new creations. Who knows, maybe I'll inspire someone else, just like many others blogs have inspired me.
My flowers are made mostly from paper. I shape each petal or leaf with a stylus and glue them to the floral wire stems. Chalk pastels and watercolors are used to color the plants. Sometimes for the centers I use flocking, tacky glue, paint or a combination of all three. It can be tedious work, but I find it therapeutic. Even if I do have to take a lot of breaks to rest my eyes.
Well, that's a little bit about me. I hope you come back to my blog soon. I'll be posting about some of the flowers I've been working on, and a special project I've been working on for a wonderful lady!
