Garden plans

I have been playing with making flowers again, I always love doing this. I have the huge garden for the manor that needs many flowers to fill. For various reasons this project has not progressed. One of which is that I wasnt sure if I should change the walls. They are covered with paper but I would rather I made the walls with paper clay. This however takes loads of time and with four children to look after, time is limited.  Anticipation is a great motivator though....

With little space to store plants for the manor garden, I decided to make plants that are in pots, most will be on etsy.

Some are my designs others are kits. Some of my favourite flower kits are from Pascale Garnier and Georgina Steeds, both highly recommended. In this picture you can see the Fritillaria Imperialis, which I made for the first time many years ago, It felt good to make them again :) The Hydrangeas were made with the wonderful lessons over the years from Barb Plevan, an amazing artist, she sells her flowers every now and then at etsy, lately she has many paintings which are also a testiment to her limitless talent. 

The daffodils are my design with techniques taught by Barb and the primrose is from a Pascale kit.

Daylight is photography's best friend!

UPDATE: this is the garden for the manor mentioned in this post.

PS thank you for everyone for entering the  quarter scale giveaway, last day is Sunday to enter.
