A Pot of Wall Flowers by Marianne Cook

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!"

  1. Do I have to use facebook and download now to get the full magazine page?
    This is different from the way it used to be. I prefer not to use Facebook.Is there any other way to view the magazine?

    1. Hi,
      No, you shouldn't need to use FB to download the IMag. Go the Tabs at the top of this page and click on the Current Edition Tab. There is a link at the bottom of that page. Click that and it will take to our AIM page. Click the cover photo of the IMag and it will then take you to the Scribd page where you download the IMag.
