One month is already gone, I spend my days quite entertained, between reading, sewing some pieces for my country house, that I will show in due time, consulting my art books, taking notes for new little projects to complement my "big" projects, and this weekend when my husband brought to me a few roses from the garden, and I was so glad that they inspired me to do my first miniature rose , does it look like a rose?
And here it is and I dedicate it to my new followers, thank you very much for following my blog.
Also I was temptated to do some jars for one of my greenhouses, they are rather colourful because I´ve used some decorative papers, glued over watercolour paper and then duly cut into the form of the jar, I remember these jars when I was a child, they were in white enamel, but I decided to decorate them. Later I will put some touches of decorative motifs in accordance, and varnish them, although they are made of paper I was surprised that at the final they got quite consistent.
I forgot to say that the rose was done with white rice paper, then I found it was to white and asked my husband to bring me one of my small watercolour boxes, he asked me already if I wanted all the studio mooved to the first floor....., so I painted a few touches of yellow and rose very diluted and then I thought that I had to put a few leaves, so I got a paperpunch and cutted a few leaves also in white, then I painted it and in result I think that I have to repeat the roses, I never thought to be able to do them properly by I think I can, with lots of time and patience.
From the garden...
