So, my papers arrived from France, thanks to my mum, and I couldn’t be more delighted. They are more delicate in colour and much softer to work with, both aspects make them much more realistic. The green for the leaves is still not quite right but I think its the best I can get anywhere.
We went for a foraging walk on Sunday for twigs to incorporate into my dogwood flowers and I am so delighted with the results. As the cut flower season is drawing to an end, I plan to make a number of longer length ones of these to have in a vase over the winter.
