I made this leaf neck adornment as a custom item in a swap.




and since this, I experimented with flowers as well as leaves, to make a variety of blossom branch neck adornments










Any other ideas of combos or styles?
I'm thinking of doing a necklace/scarf using white lillies on a lime+mid green vine


Matching the style of these, I've also made these pikmin-esque leaf bracelets.
I haven't tried them with flowers as yet, but it's on the cards  Wink





My most recent item made in a similar style, is this blood neck piece

Ooooo, I say check out blackberries... if you are from the northwest you curse these blasted invaders, but they are a beautiful art specimine... they have a delicate white flower and the berries are quite lovely! I could see a balckberry vine (no stickers of course!) in a dark purple-ie green with the white four petal flowers and fuzzy brown-ish yellow stamen/center, and the ruffle edged leaves, with a few dark berries oooo... if you make one, I want it!

Alright - do you have any pictures of a cherry blossom?
I can only envisage the type of blossom I've already done, but I'm certainly up for trying another type.

Ooooo, I say check out blackberries... if you are from the northwest you curse these blasted invaders, but they are a beautiful art specimine... they have a delicate white flower and the berries are quite lovely! I could see a balckberry vine (no stickers of course!) in a dark purple-ie green with the white four petal flowers and fuzzy brown-ish yellow stamen/center, and the ruffle edged leaves, with a few dark berries oooo... if you make one, I want it!

Such a detailed description has definately inspired me to give this a go Cheesy
I could felt tiny little balls as the blackberries. Ah, the color combination sounds delightful.
For later inspiration, maybe I should head on down to the library and find some botany books - I do like that type of art. Maybe it'll help me be more detailed in my work too.

OMG Smiley those are awsome could u do a tutorial
please!!!!!!!!


Well to begin with, they're made using a process called felting.
There's a whole section in craftster dedicated to felting and there are tutorials of how to get started in this ancient yet fabulous craft.
