The secret garden...





A few pictures of my latest project The Secret Garden. I just show you one end of the greenery since I haven´t worked on the rest and I´m still a bit uncertain how I want to decorate it. The wine in the corner is my first attempt on making a climping plant. I used leaves in 3 different sizes and 182 of them. 181 in the wine and one on the floor. They are cut, painted on both sides and shaped with a needle and then glued on. Just need some grapes now to hang from the branches. I still don´t think the wine is big and wild enough. I need a lot more of climping plants, think I´ll have a go with roses next time.

I want the garden to be overgrown with plants and moss, like it havn´t been groomed and looked after for decades. Not all forgotten, there are things indicating that someone still pays the garden a visit once and a while...

  3. @Ewa... Thanks, you might have to be a bit patient. Actually I should be working on getting my stuff ready for the fair in april.

    @Irene... Thanks to you too. The table and chairs are the usual green and cheap ones. I just repainted them, I quite like the result :0) Making the wine leaves is very therapeutic...
