I am so happy that I finally managed to finish this project! These past weeks found me procrastinating and going through a very long artistic block, which unfortunately is not over yet. So looking at this framed piece makes me feel a little better.
I started working on it in the beggining of this Summer and because back then I didn’t have all the materials I needed to finish, I had to put it on hold.
My goal was to make the ‘forget me nots’ look as close as possible to the real ones. In order to do that I had to use wire for the flowers’ stems and green flower tape to conceal it. Once I got these mats I started to assembly the plant which turned out to be very challenging because of all those little flowers which have to stay very close to each other and being the first time I had to work with floral tape… well… you can imagine! My first attempts were very messy, but once I got the hang of it, things moved a little faster. Yay!
My mom loves these blue, cute flowers, so this is a present for her. Shame on me it took me so much time to finish it, but my obsession with details took the best of me.
The finished framed picture is 23cm * 23cm. For the flowers I used 1mm – 1.5mm paper strips hand cut from 120g/sm sheet of paper.
For those of you who have your imagination with you: ‘Happy crafting!’ and for the unlucky ones like me: ‘Hope the artistic block will be over soon!’
