Not Much To Show....
It was a Hectic weekend full on Non-mini projects, Dear Readers, but I had set myself the challenge of seeing whether I could produce the weekly blossom plus ten leafy stems. I am happy to report I was successful! Above you can see blossom number Forty-eight mid assembly while the ten leafy stems were also being painted. It turned out that the two tasks worked well side by side, because I could paint while the glue was drying and glue while the paint was drying!
Here is blossom number Forty-eight completed!
And here it is in the box!
What a sight!
Here I am painting the leaves.
I paint the paler underside of the leaves first,
as well as a wide stripe down the middle of the top side of the leaves.
Then I add the darker leaf green on the top side,
carefully leaving a narrow stripe of the paler green in the middle.
It is much easier to paint up to the narrow stripe from each side
than it is to paint a narrow pale stripe down the middle of the leaf.
Above you can see just the top two leaves
have not yet been painted with the dark green,
showing you the wide center stripe I painted initially.
It will be almost completely covered by the darker green.
And here are the ten leafy stems all painted!
And I even started the painting
on all the rest of the stems I had partly finished...
They just need the darker green paint added!
So there you have it Dear Readers,
I don't have much to show,
but I am making good progress
and it is Almost Spring!
Oh, and if any of you know why my blog ID photo
has suddenly stopped showing on my blog...
and on some of my comments...
I would love to know why...
and if there is something I can do to fix it!
