Apple Blossoms..

Hello my dear friends,

I am taking to using color a little more and liking it a little more too these days. Maybe it's because Spring is in the air. I have also taken. as I am sure you are all aware of, a huge liking to making singed edge flowers and right now I am working on a new type. I need them for a new nest I am planning on making and they just shout out 'Spring' in my eyes.

 I wanted to create apple blossoms based on the singed edged concept and after a little trail and error, which is always a big part of my work process, I am happy to say that they have turned out just the way I wanted them to ... take a look!

I love the way they look, they have turned out so pretty.

Now all I have to do is work on how to create buds to go with the flowers and then I can take the next step to completing my latest creation.


A couple of days later ..

I didn't get the buds right far so I opted for just opened blossoms instead.

After a few attempts again my design for a half open apple blossom was worked out ...

... and now I can work on putting  my newest nest together but that will be or another post.

Do stop by when ever you have a few moments spare and take a look what I have been up too. I might just have something new to share.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  4. I'm covering my ears. The screams of "IT'S SPRING" are deafening me. Just kidding! These apple blossoms are perfect. And beautiful. You sure your name isn't Mother Nature?

    Keep creating!

  5. The little touches of colour 'inside' the apple blossoms is so realistic. I can almost smell them!
