Today AIM member Marianne Cook tells us about her latest handmade miniature delight....
"One flower that I really love and have been wanting to make for ages is the wallflower and recently I devoted a while to working out a way to make one. It involved painting the tissue paper, punching out flower shapes and then adding shading to each individual blossom.
After that was complete, I had to make the tiny buds which cluster around the top of each stem. Each stem has leaves growing all the way up; these needed to be cut and punched from painted paper. Then the was a lot of wire and glue!
And finally, a micro tip pen to indicate the stamens in each flower head!
This is the finished result....
I'll leave you to decide if I managed to achieve the realistic effect aimed at!"
