Pansies and Hellebores

Made a few more flowers, they always cheer me up when I need it.
Here are some Hellebores a kit by Pascale Garnier.

And of course with spring some pansies made from scratch and not a kit.
I have a row of pansies at the front of the house planted and they inspired me to make these.

Thank you for visiting , hope these made you smile too!

Spring is here!

Just a peak on some of the flowers I have been working on. 
Spring is here and pansies and daffodils are blooming everywhere.
Nothing like nature inspiring you to make mini flowers.
I especially wanted to make geraniums as I miss Greece and sea breezes so much!

Garden update Sneak peek! :)

Just a little tease, still a lot to do, still a few decisions to make but generally I have an idea where it is going. Mostly inspired by my mothers garden and the Greek plants you see blooming and smiling at you! In the image above you see a corner and a few plants to add colour, these are sunflowers, Imperial fritillaria, unfinished poppies and two lovely trees from Margaret from a swap we did.

And a little embroidery that started in 2002.
This year I only added the background and framed it.

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.
