I See Lots of Plants in My Future!
I finished the plant for the Skate Shop, I think......well, I still need to add some 'dirt', but for the most part I think I'm done. And pretty impressed! Not too bad for my first try. I wish I could figure out how to make the stems a little less wiry......any ideas out there? I'd appreciate any advice! :) I even made the basket/planter it's sitting in....just covered the cap from a can of shaving cream with twine and glue. As for the leaves, I started with green paint... then did some yellow highlights, followed by some dark green then brown highlights. Oh, and I sealed them with a gloss finish.I think it needs to be a little taller, but for now it will half to do. Who knows, Cora's house may end up with it before it's all over.
