Sorry these aren't great photos but my camera is really acting up. For some reason my camera won't focus properly on super macro right now and I can't get in to get a decent close up.
Hopefully, you can still you get the idea from these.
Each of the flowers have the tiny white and purple dots in them, there are a couple of shriveled flowers, a couple of leaf stems where the flowers have fell off and it looks like a caterpillar has been at some of the leaves :-)
This is the prototype though...don't worry Nikki, you won't be getting this one....the rest will be much better :-)
I will continue the tutorial once I can sort my camera out but really the only steps left are the flowers and the leaves. So, if you want to carry on, here is how I did it....without photos
The flowers were made by cutting a piece of paper about 1/4 inch square. Dot with white paint down the diagonal center, leave to dry then dot with purple paint over the top.
Wrap around the end of a toothpick until you form a cone shape and glue the edges down. Make sure the edge you stick down is at the back of the flower....otherwise you'll end up with a reject like above.
Cut the flower down to size. The 1/4 inch paper will give you a flower that is too big but it is much easier to handle at that stage. Insert a small piece of wire through the flower. This will become the stem which you connect to the main stem.
Once it has dried, paint the opening edge of the flower with white. I ended up using water color paint...acrylic was not subtle enough for this. Then using a tooth pick or stylus bash the opening (gently) so to it starts to curl back.
Attach 4 tiny leaves to the base of the flower but only glue at the very bottom then curl them out. Then bend the flower over and glue the wire part to the main stem. This will give them the effect of the flowers hanging rather than just being stuck to the main stem but you probably can't see the effect in these photos.
The main leaves I just cut by hand from scratch. I am not happy with the color of them yet so I'll leave that till I have figured it out better.
Now I need to go do all this again.... 8 times :-)
