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.

Looks great! Plants can be addicting! Did you have a kit or punch the leaves yourself? Which punch?

Thanks Debbie and Chris! Chris- I used blue painter's tape, and hand cut them out! And it took forever....hahaha.....but was well worth it! :)

If you use the paper wrapped florists wire, it is less shiny!
