helleu my dear mini-friends!
it's not much and Mother Nature gets most of the credit, but I think it's something many of you can use as an idea and I just like to show.
stubborn as I can be I had to try something else to get easy, realistic flora in miniature (unfortunately one of my earlier efforts with miniplants from weeds here didn't last). So when a while ago I got a lovely bouquet of flowers and saw that the smallest part of one of the flowers could be used I decided to dry it by stucking it upside down to the side of a kitchen cupboard with some tape. Because I figured that might last (a lot) longer than what I tried before and is easier too. A while later - on my birthday - I received another (gorgeous) bouquet of flowers that had 2 kinds of tiny things that would be nice for a miniature vase.
I used a portion of them in the Antique Art with a Twist, but now I've finished the bouquet. I'm not sure I've ever seen a bouquet like this in real life, but on the other hand there are countless types of flowers and plants, who's to say it couldn't exist like this right? And I think it's beautiful and although it takes some drying time: it couldn't be easier!
I have no idea if this will last, but at least it will last longer than a regular bouquet of flowers, that's for sure! And I think it's a great way of accompanying a mini scene.
